Yes, it could, but that would be throwing the baby out with the bath tub. After
all, all we want is _some_ linking to be done earlier. Creating a file containing just a few "artificial" Deps and include
that would be enough:
$(call gb_Library_get_header_target,sw) \
$(call gb_Library_get_header_target,swui) \
$(call gb_Library_get_header_target,sc) \
$(call gb_Library_get_header_target,sd) :| $(call gb_Library_get_target,svx)

without creating too much artificial dependencies.
