Yes.  Jakub Jelinek wrote on this list:

  Also, a releng mass rebuild, which I believe is a random package order,
  would very likely not help very much, due to the ABI changes one needs to
  rebuild the packages in topological order, non-C++ packages or C++ packages
  that nothing C++ depends on of course can be left for the mass rebuild, but
  ideally the rest should be rebuilt manually before the mass rebuild.
