Notice how the LUA_CFLAGS in the two files differ? If anything
triggers a rebuild of configure the working chunk in the configure
file is replaced by the broken chunk from configure.ac and then the
build fails with:

The "-I /usr/include/lua5.1" is now missing.


PS: Please consider asking for a freeze exception for this. The
problem might occur if there has to be a security fix for freeciv and
then the security team has to figure it all out again.
