Lua (note the capitalisation) does not use autoconf, and so it does not
have a configure script.
Edit the top-level Makefile; at the top you will see a variable being
set called INSTALL_TOP near the start of the file. Change that to
point to where you want to install it.
You'll also want to edit src/luaconf.h and modify the #defines that
control where Lua searches for modules by default; search for LUA_PATH
in that file, and it should be self-explanatory.
Then; make clean && make && make install
