Reverse the order in which DLLs are loaded. This makes more sense in general and
should fix the trouble with the broken OpenGL libs on Gentoo. This fix has been
tested on x86 Linux, but reports from other platforms (WinDoze, MacOS X, ...)
are highly welcome, dynamic linking is quite platform-specific and surprising
things can happen from time to time...

Merge to STABLE when tested on other platforms
