I saw that Matej Cepl was replying in the thread who is a colleague of
mine and who is the maintainer of the luajit package in openSUSE/SLE.
Since SUSE has a commercial interest in working POWER/S390 support, he
takes care of the package and makes sure it keeps working on these
My suggestion would be to just pick the packages from openSUSE 
since they are kept up-to-date.
