Yes. It was the same in the past, but at least lua seems to be new.
As far as I can see, lua is not used for building mame, but for runtime
as it's quite famous in the gaming scene.

In the older SlackBuild those bundles were disabled by passing options
to make like BUILD_<LIB>. Those have changed to USE_SYSTEM_LIB_<LIB>.

I've did no full compilation yet, but if I disable lua, compilation
fails. After installing lua from SBo, it builds fine (until the next
required lib, sqlite3 in this case).
