If you don't just want an import library (which still needs the DLL at runtime) then don't use implib. That is, if you want a self-contained static library, instead use
dmc -c lapi.c lauxlib.c [...]
to compile each source file to an OMF object file.
Now use the librarian that comes with dmc to construct an OMF lib from all those objects.
lib lua.lib lapi.obj lauxlib.obj [...]
