[Freeswitch-users] Lua 5.2 Install Issue

It does not use the one in src/mod/languages/mod_lua/lua.  Its only using system lua now as of 1.6 release.

It's using pkg-config to find it.. searching in order for the following pkg-config package names:

lua5.2 lua-5.2 lua5.1 lua-5.1 lua

Whichever one it finds first of those via pkg-config is what it tries to use.  If you manually or otherwise install lua5.2, just make sure that the .pc file is somewhere in PKG_CONFIG_PATH, and has a name in that list before the system one it is finding, it will then insert the CFLAGS and LDFLAGS in order to find the headers and libs in the paths from that pc file before the system one.

Also, if libdir for that lua libraries dir is not already in ld.so.conf you may need to add there and ldconfig.
