you need to push your function onto the stack.  as an example, look at
function lcall() in src/lua/lua.c: it gets the function registered under
the name "_TRACEBACK", moves that function to stack index 'base' (which
is below the chunk which is going to be executed and its arguments), and
then calls lua_pcall(..., base) to execute the chunk.

in this case, the error handling function is errorfb() from src/lib/ldblib.c.
it is registered with the name "_TRACEBACK" in luaopen_debug(), and is a
nice example of how to use the debug interface (lua_getstack(), lua_getinfo(),

hope that helps.
