For me that puts the Google and Dmoz directories about halfway down the list.
I read somewhere once the backwards links are listed in order of importance... guess that ain't so anymore.
There may be some criteria google uses to sort the back links - But I don't think anyone has thought it important enough to investigate.
I guess that just proves the point, "don't believe everything you read."
