Right now, gnulib-tool itself assumes that you will be using modules
that require a C compiler; perhaps this could be improved to allow use
of gnulib-tool for non-C modules such as in your package.

That's not in dependency order, but in alphabetical order, with
indentation differentiating direct use vs. dependent use without regards
to the actual dependency chain.  There's no bug there, just
misunderstanding on what the output is showing.
