I have downloaded the files located at http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/src/3.4.3 and am trying to find further instructions.

That is exactly what I am trying to not do. I wish to build the released version 3.4.3 from the released source. If I can build LibreOffice from the source archives that are released, labelled, and signed as the official source I would like to do so. If it is never possible to build LibreOffice from the source archives that is called the official source please point me at the released, versioned and signed archives that I need.
