 I feel a bit uncomfortable to bump a package to an unreleased version of a
project that is apparently not going anywhere (only a handful of commits in the
last year).

 Note that any issues are likely to be runtime issues. So it really depends on
the users of luajit (if such users even exist...) to decide if they're willing
to take that risk.

 So, IIUC, bcc depends on luajit (not plain Lua)? But it is fine with the
existing luajit version, only then you don't have aarch64 support?

 In that case, maybe it's better to make the version dependent on the
architecture, like we sometimes do for other packages. See for instance the arc
versions of binutils, gcc, gdb, glibc.
