I am trying to install ipe with my gentoo machine. However, currently lua-5.3 is masked ( and many packages still use lua-5.1. There does not seem an easy way to upgrade it to 5.3. Which version of ipe should I use to avoid heavy upgrades?

You'll have to go quite far back: Ipe 7.1.3 from early 2013. I really cannot recommend that.

Why don't you simply compile a private copy of Lua 5.3 and use that to compile Ipe yourself?
