In order for Gentoo Linux to properly support side-by-side installation of
different versions of Lua (including LuaJIT), please migrate this package as
to lua.eclass (for packages which should support multiple Lua implementations
at the same time, i.e. most likely Lua modules) or lua-single.eclass (for
packages which only have to support one Lua implementation at a time). For
details, consult documentation of respective eclasses as well as
already-migrated ebuilds in the tree.
Please note that since slotted dev-lang/lua is currently masked, your
migrated ebuilds should be masked as well. There is a section of package.mask,
created in September 2020, which you can use for this purpose so that it will
be easier in the future to unmask them all in one go.
Thank you in advance for your effort!

sci-libs/gmsh: drop useless IUSE=lua
No mention of "Lua" anywhere in the source tarball, builds exactly
the same way regardless of the value of this USE flag as well as regardless
of whether or not Lua is present on the build system (unsurprising
given the above), and according to
gmsh Lua bindings got deprecated by Python ones almost a decade ago.
