I'm trying to install Lsyncd on Ubuntu 10.4 LTS but i get some error :

Or I know I have Lua installed :
# lua -v Lua 5.1.4 Copyright (C) 1994-2008 Lua.org, PUC-Rio
I read on several forums that I need a lua.pc file but i can't find it. Does anyone know how to proceed?
EDIT : SOLVED
Some packages were missing ;)
apt-get install liblua5.1-0-dev liblua50-dev liblualib50-dev
If compiling software yourself, you should install not only the runtime (lua5.1) but also the development packages (liblua5.1-0-dev). That package contains the lua5.1.pc file.
It's also in the lua source distribution.
sudo apt-get install liblua5.1-0-dev
It seems you have installed Lua.
lua5.1.pc file will be present in the etc folder To install the other missing packages try the below command
sudo apt-get install libreadline-dev
