I think some modifications to the Makefile are in order then :)

Just a thought: if you go into src/luajit and build it manually and copy
the resulting library into ../ as libluajit.a or libluajit32.a (depending
on your arch), the Makefile shouldn't try to rebuild LuaJIT for your
platform. You'll probably still need to edit the Makefile anyway. Let me
know if I can help. Good luck!
