The build runs through lib*, perl* and then runs through descending 
order of filenames.src.rpm . Looking at the build date tag on the rpm 
tree, you should get an exact idea of the order they were built in.

The build root itself starts with the base, core, development stuff 
installed. And will install BuildRequires from a bunch of  yum repos ( 
which include the entire CentOS tree for that arch, as well as packages 
that are just built )
