Okay, I found out that you won't see these during a buildworld unless libc actually
gets recompiled, which won't happen unless libc sources get modified.  To force
these errors to appear just 'cd /usr/src/lib/libc' and 'make clean' then 'make'.

By doing a 'make -n' I found that this is the statement which produces the error:

ar cq libc.a `lorder fork.o read.o chmod.o getpid.o mount.o wmemset.o  | tsort -q`
(For clarity I snipped a huge list of .o files from the middle of that statement.)

There are several other similar statements that cause the same error message.

So whaddya think?  Is this an error to worry about?  Or not.

BTW, you can reproduce the error message by typing 'sort +1'.
