Follow-up Comment #4, bug #16008 (project freeciv):
The autoconf macro checks for tolua_getmetatable, which was added sometime
after 5.1b, but not later than 5.1.2. So the check fails even though you
have tolua. Obviously the error message isn't descriptive enough.
I have successfully linked freeciv against tolua 5.1.2 and 5.1.3. I'm not
too familiar with the Suse package system, but from your post it appears that
Suse (like Debian stable) is too far behind in its tolua packages for this
patch to be practical at this time.
If people have to custom-build tolua or go searching for packages in
nonstandard repositories, it defeats much of the point of trying to link to
system libraries. Maybe converting to system lua should wait until the
distros catch up.
