Yes it does, but given that it doesn't change the bytecode in the end I
don't see what can possibly go wrong.
To sum up:
- luac will be compiled for the host architecture (32 or 64 bit) but
we'll end up with the same bytecode on both arch.
- the interpreter will be compiled for the target like VLC, so size_t
Am I wrong?
