Yup all good now, thanks Foucault for maintaining!

Build should be working now.

Anyone else getting any weird errors RE lua lately? Not sure when it started but suddenly conky stopped working throwing a bunch of errors related to unable to parse lua in the scripts/conkyrc's, when I tried reinstalling this package it's not able to finish configuring as it can't seem to find tolua++ even though it is definitely installed, any ideas?

checking for tolua++... no
checking for tolua++5.1... no
checking for tolua++-5.1... no
configure: error: tolua++, tolua++5.1, or tolua++-5.1 is required for Lua extras.

% pacman -Qs tolua
community/tolua++ 1.0.93-2
Tool to integrate C/C++ code with Lua

Also note lua, lua51, and lua52 all installed as well. Weird as no major/minor version increases in anything lua related recently that I can tell, only the following which look to be more patch/bugfix release but maybe something interfered, also tried compiling on another computer with a working conky-lua but same issue (when building conky19-lua-nv)
[2015-11-27 18:47] [ALPM] upgraded tolua++ (1.0.93-1 -> 1.0.93-2)
[2015-12-03 13:47] [ALPM] upgraded lua (5.3.1-1 -> 5.3.2-1)

this seems to be the best package providing conky 1.9.x atm.
(anyway, i use nvidia, so for me it is)
and i managed to tweak the PKGBUILD so that i can install it alongside conky 1.10
i think this will be necessary for some time, because the new and old syntax are incompatible.
here it is:
it's not perfect, but mainstream conky does not complain when i installed it after this one.
provides a "conky19" binary in your $PATH, and some other "conky19" files.

Thank you Foucault ! Installed perfectly. Really appreciate the fast response.

Missing a makedepend. Try rebuilding now.

I have the Testing Repos enabled on this Arch install, perhaps this is causing the issue ? I have used this package on my stable Arch install without problems.
