Summary

This updates the porter's handbook to match the recent introduction of flavors for Lua ports.

Note that some of the old text was incorrect even before the recent changes; in particular LUA_SUBDIR did not exist and LUA_CMD / LUAC_CMD were already just command names and not paths.

Event Timeline

Add a note about avoiding use of XY+ version specifications

This needs to stay on hold pending the change to the version selection logic discussed on D14709.

Rewrite to match changes to logic, and extend some parts slightly.

Any chance of some review or action on this please?
