Oh yeah, of course.

LuaJIT is an alternative, just-in-time compiler for Lua. The package is
going through some radical growth right now, from different directions.
I don't expect to see a stable LuaJIT 2.0 release, or a release for
x86_64, or a release that tracks Lua 5.2 (now in development releases)
anytime very soon.

It looks from http://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/i686/luajit/
like nothing in the repos depends on it.
