The dpkg is clever enough to order the packages automatically.
Unfortunately the debian packages are made for repositories, which is somewhat
awkward for downloaders.
OTOH if you use repositories the debian packages are really great.

The old lazarus stored your user configs in ~/.lazarus. There is also the list
of your installed packages. This list is applied when you rebuild the IDE.
Eventually there should be a check and a dialog to help migrating old package
sets. Although I'm not sure how this should work.
