Usually it's best to make each patch work independently.  This is the ideal because then one doesn't need to do anything special when submitting or merging.

Of course, it isn't always possible.  Sometimes a patch is easier to read when split, but the split means that some sub-patch doesn't build.
In this case I think it is fine to note the issue in the email and then remember to squash the relevant patches at merge time.
