I would like to compile VLC 1.1.9 on Mac OS X 10.5.6.
I do ./configure and meet the following error.

checking for LUA... no
configure: WARNING: lua5.1 not found, trying lua >= 5.1 instead
checking for LUA... no

checking for luaL_newstate in -llua ... yes
configure: error: Could not find lua. Lua is needed for some interfaces (rc, telnet, http) as well as many other custom scripts. Use --disable-lua to ignore this error.

Though I installed lua 5.14 and checked it is installed by typing lua command, I got the above error too.

What is wrong ? 

Thanks in advance
