I used the configure m4 macros for Lua linked below and it is able to find all variations of lua.

I put the ax_lua.m4 file in my m4 directory and then added the following lines to my


                   if test x"$LUA_LIB" = x; then
                       AC_MSG_ERROR([Lua library not found.])
                   fi],[AC_MSG_WARN([Lua interpreter not found.])])


Hope this helps,
