[aur-general] packaging a weird library, symlinks

I try to package the IUP toolkit. The build system is fairly weird, but
in cooperation with the upstream project manager I think I know the
steps necessary to package it.
It would need a custom environment variable LUA_CPATH set to something
matching the installed lib. Afaik this would be something the user would
need to do manually, which I'd like to avoid.

The IUP project manager suggested that a symlink might do the trick
iuplua.so  -> libiuplua51.so

Is this something sensible to do?
