Build dependency list

Hi there,
Here is a question, if you were to compile an entire Debian system from
scratch with no root access, and first get all the developer packages
compiled and then use those newly built tools to build the entire system
from scratch, what would be the order of the build? Do we have any
dependency tree for the entire system and can we use that graph to
prioritize the packages for reproducible builds.

I have an account on the gcc compiler farm
(, there are various machines
there, the one gcc10 is Debian squeeze, the LIBC is old. I will need to
recompile everything to setup a prefixed installation in my home
directory but could then build and test packages. There are many other
machines available with different OS versions and architectures. If we
had a way to bootstrap the builds in user land then we could use those
resources better. Even a fedora machine could be used to bootstrap/cross
compile the Debian system and check the builds.
