Cactus REQUIRES should not introduce a build order

If thorn A requires B, then thorn A needs to be configured after B, and its libraries need to be listed before B. However, there is no reason why A should be built after B.

    In the case of a thorn providing Fortran module files (eg. the Fortran thorn) then build order needs to be imposed I believe since the module files are only created when the source is compiled not already at configuration time (as is eg. the case for ExternalLibraries).
