If you want to compile ValyriaTear from the GitHub repo, it won't work out of the box using the generated zipfile or tarball, as it does not include the necessary luabind submodule in src/luabind.
So you would need to clone the repo instead:
$ git clone https://github.com/ValyriaTear/ValyriaTear
$ git submodule update --init --remote
Alternatively, you can download a snapshot of https://github.com/ValyriaTear/luabind
and put its contents in src/luabind.
