One example of this is generating a export list of symbols for a
shared library.  Specifically, even though the object files that
go into a shared library have changed, possibly quite so, the
'external' symbol list including all argument specifications (ansi C)
has not.

Upon re-reading this part, I see that order rules won't solve the problem.
