As you probably can see, autosetup configure script looks for Lua 5.3 
and 5.2 (in that order) and that is what NeoMutt require. Looking at 
your installed version 5.1.5-r4 should bring up the solution – you have 
to unmask Lua 5.3 or Lua 5.2 (or both and using eselect to manage your 
Lua slots in Gentoo).
