fix ordering in strverscmp
Ok, it was said that fixing it was not an option "at this point" since "it
is what it is". But the function has been "fixed" once, in 2009 , so
what is different "at this point"? And gnulib still has the old version
from pre-2009. So, everything is out of sync and just generally b0rked.
FWIW, this patch fixes it to my liking. I'm not bothering with a
changelog/signoff since I have little hope of it being applied...
The patch gets you this order:
0000 < 000 < 000! < 000a < 00 < 00! < 00a < 0001 < 001 < 0100 < 010 < 010! <
010a < 01 < 01! < 01a < 0101 < 011
