Okay well the description could do a better job at explaining, and this  And 
the variables could have a more logical name because that's not a Luac-specific

Contribs build any and all the tools needed on decent Linux distro or other 
OSS operating system. It might be that only luac is needed so far, but I don't 
think that's something that should be assumed.

broken old logic and structure as the old contribs. Eight and a half years on.
