The INSTALL and luaconf.h files doesn't exist on the github repo.

Hongyi Zhao
Hi,

Based on the comments here:

https://github.com/lua/lua/blob/master/makefile

It told that:

# makefile for building Lua
# see INSTALL for installation instructions

But there isn't the INSTALL file at all in the repo and furthermore,
the makefile doesn't support install option. Any hints for these
problems?

Regards

That makefile is used for development.
The one in the distribution is different.

Nevertheless, this description also exists in the git master version.
So why not let they have a consistent layout? Are ther some spefic
reasons or difficulties for doing so?
