The order of the packages is carefully crafted to make sure
prerequisites are built in the correct order.  See the appendix for
each packages dependencies.  For instance, expect requires tcl.  When
we had a choice for the next package, it is added alphabetically, but
there is really no reason to deviate from the order given in the book.

You may, of course, do what pleases you, but be prepared to start over
if it doesn't work.
