Before that commit, the patching the manifest causes a handful of
porting tests to fail *every* time, instead of only failing due to 10% of the time.

And given we're patching, compiling, testing, and then installing on
the users machine ( Gentoo ), failing simply because the manifest
isn't sorted is not great for the deployment side of the equation.

But I'll have to see if the fix works ( hard to know for sure because
10% is low enough you could do dozens of builds without one failing ).

I suspect it will, because I'd have suggested a similar patch.
