I'm 90% certain that the order is correct.  It's a little hard to know
for sure because MATE 1.12 is still in community.

Almost everything depends on either mate-common or mate-desktop either
directly or indirectly.  That is why they are built first.  After that,
every package from MATE is installed as needed from the temporary repo.

The reason why I setup a temporary repo for the chroot is because many
of the PKGBUILDS are split PKGBUILDS that build conflicting gtk2 and
gtk3 packages, and those cannot be installed in the same chroot.

It took about half an hour for all of GTK2 MATE to build on my
Bloomfield i7 920 system.

(If you do find a discrepancy in the build order, please let me know.
I'm genuinely curious.)

I based the build order on the Install Guidelines [1] as best as I
could.  And the PKGBUILDs are taken directly from Manjaro, where they
have their own guy maintaining MATE packages [2].

I suspect that building all the gtk3 versions just involves modifying my
script to refer to the gtk3 packages.
