To make sure I am understanding this are these the correct steps?
Download luasocket from as a zip
unzip it in a directory (where should this directory be?)
place luasocket-2.0.2-6.rockspec in the same directory
run luarocks build luasocket-2.0.2-6.rockspec

I take it this will build from the local file susing the instructions in the rocspec

I appreciate your advice BTW
