And now I've played, if you ask for system cppunit and it's not there,
it bombs with an error message just fine, so that's okay.

So the only problem is this where it defaults to "build your own" and
then fails to do so ...

Spot on.

Done that, and it does work. Unfortunately, I don't seem to be able to
create a patch. I'm in libreoffice.../cppunit where my changes are, and
it claims "master is clean". Odd...

I'm wondering if the second source doesn't exist, so it's deleting the
target and then, with no source, it's unable to create the .so the
second time around ... (but that's just y speculation)
