  • Subject changed from make lua mandatory to lua: make mandatory

Having second thoughts about this. Lots of ppl don't use it and like their installs clean and lean.

However, I think we can enable it by default where ppl would need to do a --disable-lua or something to successfully compile w/o lua.
