There was an issue with how hardened profile stacking was done. This
became apparent when Arfrever cleaned up the duplicate USE flags.
Basically hardened/linux/x86 inherited from hardened/linux which
disabled unicode, but then inherited from releases/10.0 which re-enabled
it. By moving the former inheritance down the list, the hardened/linux
profile had the last word. This is how we want it even for other USE
flags, so changing the stack order was the right thing to do.
Please everyone, test the profiles! Let me know asap if something bad
happens! The same change was made to x86, amd64 multi/no-multi, ppc32,
ppc64 and ia64. I tested all but ia64.
Finally Thanks William for pointing this out, but please open a bug next
time so we have a record in our bugzilla regarding what happened and how
we fixed it.
