I've just tried it without success - it still fails stating luajit can
not be found - despite the fact that "bitbake luajit" seems to work
without any issues.

I am not sure it makes a difference, I additionally use the
meta-altera layer and I am running inside a debian chroot (in the same
environment where the build with angstrom-v2016.06-yocto2 actually

Could it have something to do with pkg-config not beeing prefixed -
like mentioned in the configure log?

Best regard, Clemens
