Ignoring the obvious errors that I don't have cl in my path and don't have an lao.obj, isn't luarocks supposed to provide some sort of contained compilation solution on Windows, and shouldn't those -I parameters be quoted (since the first one goes to a path with spaces)?

If you have Visual Studio installed, you need to open a command prompt.  For instance, in VS2008, there's "Visual Studio 2008 Command Prompt" in the start menu. Open that and rerun luarocks install there.
