Since the only thing I can find to complain about in this game is the end game of the last player to act normally winning, would it hurt to add a dice roll to determine the turn order?

Watching people leave a temp VP on purpose just so they have less VP so they can go last seems kind of unsportsmanlike. I'd rather let dumb luck decide.

I see VP manipulation as being a part of the strategic gameplay. Vying for turn order control is a valid strategy.

HOWEVER, I've also seen this tactic backfire... purposefully forgoing a VP allows another player to "run away" with the VP race. Sure the lower VP player gets to go last, but sometimes it's a matter of too little, too late.

I too have seen this.

The person who goes last has a huge, huge advantage. Making that person random wouldn't really improve the game, IMO. It's almost be like randomly giving victory to somebody.
