question about ordering of lines in rc.conf

It appears that the order of the *_enable="YES" lines in /etc/rc.conf is 
important.  I am looking at a HOWTO for HPLIP in which the author suggests 
adding two lines in a certain order.

Since I recently had a problem with jabberd starting before myslq was ready to 
accept connections and I just found that  jabberd_enable="YES" precedes 
mysql_enable="YES" in my rc.conf, I am wondering whether order is important.
Can anyone provide an answer?

I solved the problem I was having with jabberd but in a different way.
