Change a handful of lines of code. 
 Remove compat.h, change luaL_module to luaL_openlib
 package.loaded["base"]=_G in socket.lua
 thats it.

disappears in 5.1
It means the named script will run at lua startup
>      LUA_PATH=/Users/diego/tec/luasocket/?.lua;?.lua
Where to find the lu scripts
>      LUA_PATHLIB=/Users/diego/tec/luasocket/?.dylib;?.dylib
becomes LUA_CPATH in 5.1 , where to find the C libraries
> When trying to import, say, "http", I get:
> require( "http" )
> lua: Example.lua:174: package `http' not found
