I figured out the problems by parsing info from config.log. In case anybody
is having similar issues, you can try these -
(1) pkg-config wasn't detecting lua since Lua's "sudo make install" didn't
create lua.pc file. So I went ahead and manually created a lua.pc in
/usr/lib/pkgconfig (in fact, even /usr/share/pkconfig would do I guess).
(2) Apart from maths lib to be included, we also need -ldl. So, added
--extra-ldflags="-lm -ldl" to build.sh script.
