I have just added the LibreOffice part, see 
It adds --with-extra-buildid configure option. The information is shown
in the about dialog.

I am going to update tinderbox script. See the attached screenshot for
what I have in mind.

Note that it might take longer time because I need to test it carefully
to do not break all tinderboxes :-)

You might say that I broke the nice design of the about dialog again.
Well, this line won't appear in official builds. IMHO, it is very handy
to have everything on one place, so you could just open the dialog and
paste the info into bugzilla. Also I think that it is easier to have it
in about dialog than in any file somewhere hidden on the system. And to
be honest, this was the easiest solution :-)

Best Regards,
