Edit: I've just about got this built.

@KenHarkey how did you end up going?

I too would love to see MAME on Solus.

I'm building this package. Unfortunately it requires a Lua function, luaopen_bit32 which seems to be available only from Lua 5.2 (check yourself here). Solus currently ships 5.1.5. I'm gonna update Lua first if I can.
To be more precise, sol needs that function, not mame itself. Sol is a library mame uses.

EDIT: LOL. T2169

Forget my previous message: I managed to go past that error with luajit.

It's me again. This package is a no-go with current Lua version. Definitely.

If you allow me to, I can package mame with bundled Lua to temporary fix that.

Contributions to D1016 are very appreciated :)

Any news about this? My patch has been around for a while.
