IIRC It's because cus-dep.el loads files and the load order is important.
The set of preloaded files is different, so the load order is different
so the resulting cus-load.el is different.
This is especially the case when one variable is defcustom'd in two
files (as is the case for c-indent-level), but I suspect it's also
the case for other situations.
