Yeah, that sounds about right.  You just need to remember to move the 
makedepend build up to some point before your Mesa build (yes, I know I 
said imake earlier, but then I remembered that makedepend is packaged 
separately).  As scripted, the utils (xorg-cf-files, imake, makedepend, 
gccmakedep, and lndir) are dead last in the build order.
