So until luac-32bits.patch gets back vlc-android build will be broken.
Only Ludovic can bring it back? The documentation Rafaël referred to
and my experiment:
$ amd64/usr/bin/luac5.3 -o foo.luac.amd64 foo.lua
$ i386/usr/bin/lua5.3 foo.luac.amd64
i386/usr/bin/lua5.3: foo.luac.amd64: size_t size mismatch in precompiled chunk
showed that bytecode is still (and will be?) not portable, thus the
patch seems to be unavoidable.
