So, I can either assume a problem in the code, or a strange install 
sequence.  You prefer the former, I assume the latter. What is or is not 
sensible depends on your perspective, strongly conditioned on your 
expeience. There are lots of packages and applications (even operating 
systems) I work with, where the sequence of installation/compilation 
becomes a critical factor. I can (but won't) mention certain Linux 
distributions where if you don't upgrade things in  a very particular 
order, the upgrade will fail (classic example -- updating glibc libs 
before anything else).
