Hi Brenton,

Not impossible, we just need to tweak the configure process a little

I re-started with lua5.1 (on Debian Stretch), instead of 5.3, and got
a lot further, but now it fails in testing.

I have now switched to a Centos 6 container (on a Debian Stretch host)
and have to work my way through finding and installing the various
dev RPMs (including the C compiler!).

If you could post a list of RPMs to install, that would be most helpful.
