Some time ago I took a look at hooking lua53 flavors in the ports that
support it. It turned out that some ports were already broken with
particular versions of lua (the most common errors are missing functions
at dlopen time, and module() errors), yet they were hooked up.
So it's not just about adding lua53 flavors, but about having
a consistent ports tree. In the end, I think that lua.port.mk should
stop populating FLAVORS automatically, so that people hacking on lua
have to explicitely enable the lua versions they tested. Just like for
The diff to explicitely add FLAVORS / hook them up is not ripe yet,
but first I'd like to know if people object to the proposal above.
