I've comitted a patch which make <use> feature work for searched libs as well.
Due to jam limitation, we can't yet maintain the order between searched or
non-searched libs, but all searched libs should now appear in the right

The patch is a bit experimental, so implementation might change, but I hope
the right ordering will be there forever.

Testing would be much appreciated.
