You might want to let it be for a bit or check out 7.5-RC1.  Build order 
will be unchanged.  I was kind of letting the xorg section hang for a 
just a bit as the update to 7.5 will be official any day now....AFAIK, 
we're just waiting on a final release of xf86-input-joystick (and maybe 
a couple of minor updates to other modules if the RC has any issues, but 
there are none that I can see on my current build).  When I commit, I'll 
make the recommendation in the book.
