Thank you that was a big help. I looked at the linker and found that the 



in later code referred to in the plural IDNA_LIBS which I changed to the 
singular IDNA_LIB.

I also found that the existing macports Portfile for for prosody version 
.9.1 included an extra dependency libidn not listed 


This page lists this command to install dependencies using macports and OS X

port install lua lua-luasocket lua-luasec lua-luaexpat 

this should be

port install lua lua-luasocket lua-luasec lua-luaexpat libidn

That command successfully installs all the dependencies and I can build 
either .9.8 or timber.

Once those are installed I'm still faced with the original problem that 
neither prosody version will run on lua 5.2.

My question is now focused on what configure args should I use to get 
timber to use lua version 5.2.

Thanks for all the help so far.
