Couple of things for anyone ready to play with rrdtool and lua:

1. Get lua 5.1. Lua 5.2 will not work since some calls have been replaced from main 
    distribution file

2. You can use the distribution packages or compile your own. Make sure if you compile
    and build LUA yourself you will enable dynamic shared libraries for LUA. Default
    LUA is building the only a static lib

3. luajit is not compatible with rrdtool's configure script. It will not correctly detect nor will 
    it work.

Nice to have for future:

1. Support LUA 5.2 

2. Support LuaJIT for fatser processing rrd files via LUA
