It comes down to a matter of how much? I think the note that Tushar put
in is useful...but to say that it needs to built first is incorrect. In
the other two examples, the specific items listed *must* be built first,
in the order listed to satisfy other deps. I think Tush's note will
stay, but It will be reworded slightly (so that 'First' is removed).

Actually 293 pages by today's count on the upcoming xorg-7.1. I used a
cvs pull of xserver 1.1 branch today. Update will _not_ be a big deal
at all. Still need a couple of fixes that aren't in yet (as of 30
minutes ago), so I don't know how much will have to happen with
tomorrow's release yet. I know the fixes for what is current though! :-)
