Why do you want to force the use of lua 5.2 at all? Lua 5.2 is not
compatible with 5.1 in many places[1], because of that we have a 'lua51'
package in the repositories. 'lua-socket' is also packaged for 5.1 and 5.2.
After having a quick look at that tarball, I see that
'ekeyd-1.1.4/host/Makefile' explicitly uses lua 5.1 for the headers and
should do for the libraries. If not, this can be fixed.

Please change the dep to lua51 and try to compile and use it again.
It is impossible to do for most of us, because we do not have that
special device.

best regards,
