FWIW, Lua 5.2.3 (the latest version) comes packaged for Ubuntu 14.04
LTS already. Just do

$ sudo apt-get install lua5.2 

and for the development headers:

$ sudo apt-get install liblua5.2-dev

As others have pointed out, your problem with compiling is a missing
dependency. But unless you want to install a modified version (something you
say you "refuse" to do), there's no reason not to install the package.
