From http://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/manual/autoconf/Libraries.html

"The other-libraries argument should be limited to cases where it is
desirable to test for one library in the presence of another that is not
already in LIBS."

To me, this suggests that the existing order is correct. Perhaps you're
seeing this problem because we're appending to GNT_LIBS instead of LIBS?
