The actual error is:

libtool: compile:  x86_64-mandriva-linux-gnu-gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I.
-I../include -I../include/apt-pkg -I.. -I./include -I. -DWITH_POSIX
-I/usr/include/libxml2 -D_RPM_4_4_COMPAT -O3 -ffast-math -march=native
-c lrexlib.c  -fPIC -DPIC -o .libs/libluaext_la-lrexlib.o
lrexlib.c:164:14: error: unknown type name 'luaL_reg'
 static const luaL_reg posixmeta[] = {

This indicates that 'luaext' uses `luaL_reg`, which was part of lua
5.1, but removed in 5.2.
You'll need to rewrite parts of luaext to use the new lua APIs.
