I tend to disagree.
With the original order:
-L/usr/X11R6/lib -lgtk-x11-2.0 -lgdk-x11-2.0 -latk-1.0 -lgdk_pixbuf-2.0 
-lpangoxft-1.0 -lXft -lfreetype -lz -lXrender -lXext -lfontconfig 
-lpangox-1.0 -lX11 -lpango-1.0 -lm -lgobject-2.0 -lgmodule-2.0 
-lglib-2.0 -lintl -liconv

it fails to link, and with the reverse order of requires it works okay.

-L/usr/X11R6/lib -latk-1.0 -lgdk_pixbuf-2.0 -lpangoxft-1.0 -lXft 
-lfreetype -lXrender -lXext -lfontconfig -lpangox-1.0 -lpango-1.0 
-lgobject-2.0 -lgmodule-2.0 -lglib-2.0 -lgdk-x11-2.0 -lgtk-x11-2.0 -lX11 
-lz -lintl -liconv

The windows linker doesn't allow unresolved symbols at linktime, the 
linux linker does.
