What is the problem exactly? From what I see, those are the only 2
parameters that aren't basic types.. So you'll need to provide a way to
obtain them from lua, and probably a way to actually 'use' GL2PSrgba. For
FILE* it's easy, you can just add the declaration of fopen to your pkg
(you can even add a default value for de 'mode' parameter :). For
GL2PSrgba, you'll need to declare the struct, and add a constructor (or if
you're on C, add a function that creates one, you'll have to provide

I hope that helps (I don't know if I got the question right).
