Ok, the '**' don't belong there, but that's probably not the problem.
Can you try with a clean init.lua?
You can create a temporary one with, textadept -u ~/tmp/test
(if you are on Linux, similarly on other platforms) and edit the
init.lua in this directory.
Maybe you already have a 'makefile' module from an earlier attempt?

Also, which version are you using?
events.LANGUAGE_MODULE_LOADED was introduced in 6.6.
I use the latest 7 beta.
