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! :-)
