If your host allows you to ssh and has make, then building Lua is very simple:

mkdir ~/lua # or some other directory
wget http://sputnik.freewisdom.org/files/easy-lua-install-2007-01-18
bash easy-lua-install-2007-01-18 --without-readline --prefix=/home/yuri/lua/
cd share/lua/5.1/
wget www.frykholm.se/files/markdown.lua

This will get you the interactive prompt:

Lua 5.1.2 Copyright (C) 1994-2007 Lua.org, PUC-Rio

<p>oh <em>hai</em></p>

I can try and see how far I get on webfaction. Can you send me the scripts?
