Have a look at
which can be visualised into something like
(e.g. through "jhbuild dotty" and springgraph or graphviz).

You can derive a build order by doing a topological sort
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topological_sort) of the dependency
information in there.

Start with libxml2 (as it has no dependencies), strike out libxml2 from the
dependencies, continue with libxslt (which has no dependencies anymore),
then gtk-doc-tools, then glib, then atk and pango, then gtk+ etc. etc.

Frankly, I think anybody's a fool to put (Microsoft operating system
Windows) XP on their computer. It's like installing a continuous, 24-hour
monitor on your mind.
