Compiling and installing e17 on Slackware ARM 14 on Raspberry pi, hung on Lua

So I've successfully compiled all of e17's stuff until now. The current package is edje-1.7.1 and it asks for Lua. I installed Lua following the online instructions and then double checked that all the files were in place (as far as I could tell). I ran into a few folders with empty contents, which disturbed me.

For Lua:
$ make linux
$ make linux install
For edje I don't get past "$ ./" which spits out this every time:

checking for LUA... no
checking for LUA... no
checking for LUA... no
checking for LUA... no
checking whether lua_newstate() is in liblua... checking for lua_newstate in -llua... no
configure: error: Cannot find lua library. Be sure that you have installed it and set CFLAGS and LDFLAGS correctly
I recalled that for e17 the instructions recommended "&& ldconfig" at the end after "make install". Should I have done that with Lua (looking at LDFLAGS)?

Thoughts, ideas?
