I am going through this now. My comments:

xxx/xxx/Makefile: Patches are fine for texlive, but I will not apply
   these changes in the upstream. These packages do not use autoconf
   (yet) and I really need the -Wall etc. while developing.

libs/luafilesystem/src/lfs.c: I changedthat  a bit because your patch
   broke compilation on win32.

libs/luafontforge/fontforge/inc/basics.h: what was the problem? You have
   commented out some typedefs, but these should be harmless.
   (Fontforge is upstream for me myself, so I prefer not to make changes
    to headers unlees absolutely necessary.)

src/texk/web2c/luatexdir/font/luafont.c: one of the new "halfword next"s
   was a level off.

Best wishes,
