I want to compile wireshark 1.8.0 version with lua enabled on centos 6.2.
Here are the steps that I tried, 1) downloaded and extracted the wireshark source.
2) ./configure --with-lua=/usr/
4) created and rpm and installed it in the same system
when i launch wireshark in about me section it says compiled without lua, although the .configure command output did say configured with lua library = yes. I have properly installed lua-devel 5.1 package installed in system.
Any suggestions or documentation that i can follow to compile lua on wireshark and how do I test it properly?

That looks strange. You better leave the path and let the build system find the correct path for lua.
Can you show the output of your compiled wireshark?

Any arguments you manually give 'configure' when building an RPM are not used when building the RPM. The RPM .spec file has its own 'configure' line which controls what actually goes into the RPM.
(Remember that RPMs are designed to build from un-modified source and a .spec file; the .spec file contains everything that controls the actual build.)
