Changing the compilation order is easy: you just modify the order of the
names in SUBDIRS in the toplevel makefile. Whether this is a good idea,
I'm not sure, although it seems to make sense initially. (Unless there
are some circular dependency issues with tools depending on updated
libraries to run correctly.)
