Bug#361740: liblua50-dev: symlink pointing to .

If software using Lua's C API wants to be portable, it should use the
<lua.h> form and get the include path from pkg-config.  That should be
the end of it.  Should someone want to use such software on a tiny
system without pkg-config, they can make the one line change to the
makefile.  Hacks such as the symlink only encourage further
obliviousness to best practice.
