Ordered rebuilds generally only are necessary when bumping sonames or
otherwise bootstrapping items.  Given that neither of those apply for
this rebuild, effort spent trying to order and chain builds would be
effort wasted.

Well, there is one change in F11, which introduces a need for an least partial ordered rebuild:

rpm has started to automatically add
Provides: pkgconfig(foo)

and to automatically add
Requires: pkgconfig(foo)

This requires an ordered rebuild in cases, when a package is part of a chain of (devel) package deps.
