Dunno about the others, but some notes on the "soffice" binary.

desktop/source/app/sofficemain.cxx hardcodes "soffice" with
Application::SetAppName which means that vcl/unx/gtk/app/gtkdata.cxx
calls g_set_prgname with that name. Which means that the recently-used
files in GNOME spawns off "soffice" when you open those up from
places->recent documents. 

So *if* soffice is changed to "libreoffice" then that hard-coded line in
desktop needs to be changed as well.
