Unable to compile conky with lua support


Code:
checking for X11... yes
checking for Imlib2... yes
checking for LUA... yes
checking for cairo... yes
checking for cairo_xlib... yes
checking for tolua++... tolua++
checking for library containing tolua_error... no
configure: error: tolua_error not found

conky:
Would you like to continue processing the rest of the
queue or would you like to abort?  If this failed
package is a dependency of another package in the queue
then it may not make sense to continue.

(Y)es to continue, (N)o to abort, (R)etry the build?:
64-bit -current.

It looks like I need to install another library, but I can't find any information by googling as to what library I need to install.

All I could find on google was something from 2009 on the Arch forum, saying to set LUA51_LIBS, which didn't work.

are you using the script from SBo? That works fine here, when the optional dependencies (also from SBo) are installed
Code:
checking for LUA... yes
checking for cairo... yes
checking for cairo_xlib... yes
checking for tolua++... tolua++
checking for library containing tolua_error... -ltolua++
...
you can also see if you have some details of the error in the config.log.

All the dependencies (lua, tulua++, imlib2) were installed, but after recompiling and reinstalling them all it's now working.
