That onion picture doesn't quite work for me. A compiler is necessary to build C programs, but after that, the programs are freestanding. Shells don't exist at any higher level than application programs; they're just executables too. So sometimes the diagram describes the way things are connected; other times, it just describes how they're commonly used.
