The dependencies in the new modules (e.g. 
are also against the delivered headers (one excerpt):

	$(OUTDIR)/inc/offuh/com/sun/star/lang/XComponent.hpp \
	$(OUTDIR)/inc/sal/config.h \

Thus, the include dependencies could also be wrong with the new build 
system by being dependent from the build order of the modules, same as 
with the old modules.

Hopefully the new system has a better way to define the module 
dependencies against each other to exclude this possibility. As long as 
the old and new builded modules are mixed I doubt this.
