ncat tests - linking problems

Hey everyone,

thank you for developing
and maintaining this wonderful tool!

I found a minor problem with your
current make system: ncat's tests are build
with a wrong order of libraries.

The lua library depends on libdl, so libdl should
be listed _after_ lua in the compile command.
This type of dependency is the reason why $(LIBS)
is normally listed _last_ by default.
The attached patch changes this.

The problem only shows up when you compile
your system with -Wl,--as-needed and is therefore
a minor issue. Nevertheless, I would like
to see this fixed. :)
