I wrote both of those.  On the one hand it seemed natural to install X11
first since X11SDK would be automatically installed by Xcode Tools if X11
was present, but on the other it seemed like the first install item should
be the most important one.  I decided on the latter for the guide because
I thought that forcing X11SDK (without X11) was possible.  I think I
tested it, but I'll recheck it when I get the chance.
