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 [1]
since they are kept up-to-date.
