Two things:

1) be sure to install all needed 3rd party libraries using our contrib system (extras/contrib, see OSXCompile on wiki for more info)
2) if you have done so (and you made sure that lua isn't installed anywhere else on your Mac), make sure that your contribs and VLC's configuration match their architecture. This means, that contribs needs to include i686-apple-darwin9 in extras/contrib/hosts (if you compile in 32bit mode, which is the default on 10.5) or x86_64-apple-darwin9 in contribs and --build=x86_64-apple-darwin9 as configure flag (for 64bit mode, which is discouraged on 10.5).

Best regards,

Felix Kühne
