Book Reorganization

Hi all,

Noticed in the Book's reorganization is some of the packages listed
now in alphabetical order, instead of the order in which they used to
be listed.

That is with the prerequisites listed before the others. Many folks
just follow the book, sometimes without regard to the optional

My feeling is the other way, in which the dependencies were listed
before the others is a better way to do it.

For example, GCC should be listed after the Tcl, Tk, Expect and
DejaGNU packages. As the latter mentioned ones should be installed

In my opinion, the book should represent the proper build order
more than an alphabetical order.

Thoughts from others?
