    installworld: When installing libraries, install libc first
    The libraries have to be built in a specific order.  The way the makefile
    is written, the libraries are installed in the same order as they are
    built.  However, this dynamic made it impossible to install an new libc
    that signficantly impacts other libraries in-place.  For example,
    libncurses is significantly impacted by libc versioning, and it is
    installed before libc which causes immediate failure in programs like
    "ln" and "install" because rtld can't find new symbols.
    The solution is update the lib makefile to put libc at the beginning
    of the installation queue.  This simple change ensures libc changes
    will not break world installation.
