I don't think that the primary purpose of tsort/lorder is to produce a 
functioning library.  The idea is to reduce the link time when the 
library is later used by reducing the number of passes that the link 
editor has to make over the input libraries.  I doubt this matters much 
anymore, and it's certainly not going to help with the sort of 
libraries that PostgreSQL produces with circular references all over.
