Follow-up Comment #1, bug #52076 (project make):

This was an intentional change.  To quote the NEWS file:

* WARNING: Backward-incompatibility!
  Wildcards were not documented as returning sorted values, but the results
  have been sorted up until this release..  If your makefiles require sorted
  results from wildcard expansions, use the $(sort ...)  function to request
  it explicitly.

My recall is that there's a non-trivial performance gain from this for some
large projects.
