gotest: force test package to be imported first
When compiling the x_test package, force the test package to be
imported first. That ensures that we will see the types defined in
the test package before the types defined in the non-test version of
the package. This matters if the types differ in some way, such as by
adding a new method.
This avoids a failure in internal/poll on Solaris, in which the test
package adds a method to a type (FD.EOFError). I think it was Solaris-
specific because files are sorted in a different order by default.
The go tool handles this kind of thing correctly, by rebuilding
dependent packages. This is just a hack sufficient to run the libgo
testsuite without using the go tool.
