I know that in the Debian world, the link target is quite clearly: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/liblua5.1.so

The problem is that there are more ambiguities as soon as library version numbers are included at the level of compiling
e.g:

Ubuntu, Debian:

liblua5.1.so

CentOS 6, Fedora 16:

liblua-5.1.so

etc.,

while Fedora 6 uses liblua.so instead ;-)
Besides openSuSE also RedHat uses no version numbers.

This is a mess.
