The build system itself does not know if it is building for a 32 or 64 bit
host. What the failing test does do is check if the copy of Lua it found is
capable of handling 32 or 64 bit integers. Support for 64 bit integers in
Lua is  new feature for Lua 5.3+, so now the test in configure needs to be
fixed to address that.

With that said, if you are not using the Lua 5.3 from contribs, your system
should not be running that test in the first place. Are you possibly
missing the .pc files for 5.1 and/or 5.2?
