That patch didn't change dependencies, just change the order lines
showed up in the Makefile Before all this, the order depended on the
order listed in configure, not the Makefile. Since the point of all
this is to support parallelisms (i.e. check bfd, gas, and ld all at
the same time), if you want them checked in a specific order you'll
have to serialize them with additional dependencies, which would lose
the benefits of parallelisms.
I suppose we could rely on the order listed in configure/Makefile.tpl
still, but I really hate to rely on such a fickle thing if the order
