This would make things "order independent" for the specific subset of pthread
implementations git supports right now. But there are systems where e.g. both
-lpthreads and -lpthread work (link correctly, produce no warnings), but only
one provides a POSIX compliant pthread implementation. For such systems, order
will play a role, no matter what. Granted, git does not yet support such
systems (with regards to pthreads, at least) at all.
But all in all, I don't understand why this order independence seems to be so
important? To me it seems merely an illusion anyway, not worth the extra effort.
