After some time playing around with LUA Im able to see that even FreeBSD lua
package (  lua52-5.2.3_2 ) does not work with rrdtool-1.4.8 - configure seems Linux
specific ...

>  - # pkg install lua52-5.2.3_2
>  - configure rrdtool ... which ended up like this:
> checking for lua... /usr/local/bin/lua
> checking for lua >= 5.0... 5.2 found
> checking lua52/lua.h usability... yes
> checking lua52/lua.h presence... yes
> checking for lua52/lua.h... yes
> checking lua52/lualib.h usability... yes
> checking lua52/lualib.h presence... yes
> checking for lua52/lualib.h... yes
> checking lua52/lauxlib.h usability... yes
> checking lua52/lauxlib.h presence... yes
> checking for lua52/lauxlib.h... yes
> checking for library containing lua_call... no
> Lua headers found but not the libraries! Please reinstall the dev packages for Lua 5.2

There are no dev libraries on FreeBSD - Is this a bug in rrdtool configure 
for FreeBSD ?
