[rrd-users] rrdtool and lua questions

Are people around here using rrdtool and lua ? I have seen we have bindings for LUA
but I was curious how one would get them compiled correctly:

 - use lua-5.2.3 src code  
 - or use luajit-2.0.3

For example trying to compile rrdtool, latest against lua-5.2.3 returned with some errors:

I tried as well to use luajit but configure was not able to find its version and no modules to build. 
Any ideas how to get rrdtool compiled with lua correctly ?

Many thanks,
