The Portable builds are hosted at LibreOffice but they are created by the
PortableApps owner. There are no instructions available to create such a
version (I offered to help in creating the missing versions but never got
any answer http://portableapps.com/node/35110)

The existing versions are all stored in LibreOffice's server. The only
problem is that as soon as a new branch is released they abandon the
previous branch, so there is no final version for each branch.

Luckily, the guys at winPenPack think differently :)

(two pence are much more than 2 cents :) )
