Which platform are you on?  If you're able to get on IRC, #dataflow on 
irc.freenode.net, I could try and help you get it compiled, and 
hopefully make it easier for others to compile it too.

After some discussion with Hans, we decided that as pdlua is still 
changing rapidly it would be better to have pdlua as a separate 
download.  Hans, can you confirm that pdlua is no longer included in the 
pd-extended builds?

I think there is still an old version of pdlua in the pure-data svn 
repo, if someone can remove it I'd appreciate it, either that or convert 
it to an svn:external thing against the pdlua development version:

Good idea, I'll take a look.
