Yes. I could have done this to. I don't know why I didn't did.

Yes. :)

With git rebase --interactive it's possible to change the order of
commits. I've did so for the commits for the configure flags:

I was to lazy to do the commits after making the changes. So I made all
changes and created then the commits with git commit -i. But I did it in
the wrong order. The first what I did was removing the dpatches, because
the package did not built otherwise. They had to come earlier to make the
package build as soon as possible. Due to this the time “jumps backward”
after these three commits.

With git you can easily reorder commits.
