If I recall correctly, the dependencies in the metaconfig units control
the ordering in Configure, but not the ordering in config_h.SH.  The
ordering in config_h.SH, I believe, is determined by a simple alphabetical
ordering of the units.  That's what the a_dvisory/ directory is for.  I
think there are some more details in the metaconfig/README file.
