If they are allocated as VB, then the file with the longest records must be concatenated first.

If they are allocated as FB, they cannot be concatenated. The shorter
file(s) would have to be expanded to match the LRECL of the largest file.

That depends on the product/program being used. For example, DFSORT does not require that the file with the largest LRECL be concatenated first - VB files can be concatenated in any order.
