It doesn't.

I'm sorry but I can't reproduce this.  And the code seems correct,
because the contents of .stowrc are simply prepended to the list of
CLI arguments before parsing all arguments via Getopt::Long's
GetOptions() function, in which later arguments override earlier ones.

Please can you state the exact Stow version you are using, and give
the exact steps to reproduce a minimal test case?  Thanks!

I cannot reproduce it now too. It was with the picolisp being in /usr/lib

<DEV> root [ /usr/lib ]# ls picolisp/

<DEV> root [ /package/prog ]# cat /root/.stowrc
<DEV> root [ /package/prog ]# stow -t /usr/lib picoLisp

OK good.  If you see it again in the future please save the exact
steps and let me know here :-)
