The configure script looks for pkgconfig files (lua.pc) first, and
some rpm have it.
 # SuSE seems to have it for instance

I've installed lua-5.2.0 into my FreeBSD box, and tried reproduce the
 - The lua-5.2.0 tarball from does not have lua.pc file:
   perhaps someone will contribute one as in 5.1.x.
 - LIBLUA_CFLAGS and LIBLUA_LIBS env didn't work for me, though they
   were mentioned in the configure script.
 - modified the configure script to accept
    -I/usr/local/include/lua52, -L/usr/local/lib/lua52, and -llua-5.2

then I got the same:
| cc -std=gnu99 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I.. -I./../libopendkim
-I/usr/include -I/usr/local/include/lua52
-DCONFIG_BASE=\"/usr/local/etc\" -O2 -pipe -fno-strict-aliasing -MT
miltertest-miltertest.o -MD -MP -MF .deps/miltertest-miltertest.Tpo -c
-o miltertest-miltertest.o `test -f 'miltertest.c' || echo
| miltertest.c: In function 'main':
| miltertest.c:3975: warning: implicit declaration of function 'luaL_register'
| miltertest.c:4125: error: too few arguments to function 'lua_load'

both luaL_register and lua_load are on API change section of lua manual.

I think supporting lua-5.2.0 requires certain amount of work.
I'd suggest that putting it off towards 2.5.1 or later.
