[vlc-devel] [PATCH] Configure: find LUAC in srcdir/bin, rather than in contrib dir. If contribs were built using a prefix, ${CONTRIB_DIR} will point to that prefix and ${CONTRIB_DIR}/../bin will be an invalid location where to find luac.

If I am not mistaken, I think I ran into the same problem.
The path where the luac tool is installed to does not in all
cases seem to match the path where configure tries to find it.

As stated in the previous email:

So either install location of luac needs to be fixed,
installing something outside prefix seems weird…
Or configure needs to be fixed to look in the correct place,
at least.
