Peter asked about the error message which I don't recall verbatim, but
can paraphrase to 'what?'..and this would explain it *smile*.

Well it was changed, I see now, on the wiki page[1] but not on the TDF
website page [2]..problem was a google search for 'build libreoffie'
took me to the TDF page first.

I suppose the same type of issue with the wiki page that sent me back to
OpenOffice.org web resources looking for TestTool...so I suppose I can
help with this by asking questions and where possible updating pages to
reflect the answers where appropriate.

Right - well, my thought was with regards to a supporting QA tasks. In
looking at the information I could find regarding subsequenttests it
appeared that a full build environment was needed, but even short of
that one would want to be able to generate symbol tables and heck maybe
even try to code simple patches...you never know.
