applies and compiles fine. There is one snag, when linking
rrd-0.0.9.so it does not seem to put the -rpath setting in place.

this is a problem when you do not install rrdtool into a
non-standard location, since then rrd.so will not find librrd.so

in the docs you may want to use INSTALL_PREFIX instead of

in the Makefile you are using many gcc-like options (-fPIC) this
will beome a problem when compiling with a non gcc compiler. Can't
you use libtool or at least get the relevant options from the
installed lua instance (perl does it this way).
