Then it must be some other flag. Maybe a different version of lua or whatever.

It could be for two reasons:
- maybe --disable-mfluajit is also needed (you need to check the exact
name, I'm not 100% sure if I spelled it correctly)
- it could be that the configure option was not applied correctly

I suspect the first one, since mfluajit is relatively new and luajit
build has at some point automatically been disabled on powerpc, so
nobody actually noticed that the configure argument was not effective.
