indeed, this is caused by the ELF error, so i guess i'll be removing the
i686 support for now, until i find a solution..

the source package includes a (slightly) modified lua distribution, so
it doesn't need to call the system-wide headers. lua is only needed for
scripting in this case.

i'm not sure where it's needed exactly (obviously a runtime dependency),
but it's mentioned there on the project's homepage.

which ".so" are you talking about? if you mean "gtk.so" (the one that's
causing all the errors), that one is used internally by the editor, and
its position is essential for it to run successfully..

yes, i noticed, i'm taking care of it.
