lang/lua: It does need gmake.

I get a build failure on amd64:

/usr/bin/ld: lapi.o: relocation R_X86_64_32 against `luaO_nilobject_'
can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
lapi.o: could not read symbols: Bad value
*** Error code 1

I got it fixed by add USE_GMAKE=yes in the Makefile and now I can get
it built ok. If you compare the build log between make and gmake. You
will see it has different output. This has broken it.

May I commit it by add USE_GMAKE=yes back in?
