Yes, but I'd like to know _why_ this order works best.  Why must Gawk 
come first (after the toolchain)?  Has it the biggest chance of being 
broken or too old on the host?  Why must Bash come so late?  Does it 
depend on Texinfo?  And so on.  I'd like to have the reasons explicit, 
or go alphabetical.
