In this case yes :-) I didn't know that there are so many libs and 
binaries needed at the moment. I just remember that the last time I 
build a pre OOo 3.2.0 I was able to checkout the sources and build 
it without ccache being the only additional software I installed. 

Looking at this list now it reminds me of the building the X11 OOo 
on the mac :-)

Is this because of a new build process that LibO uses compared to 
the one OOo uses? 

Plus, I wonder were all the cleanup work done by Christian Lohmaier 
is gone. He did a great job in making OOo build on an 
out-of-the-box with XCode installed. 

Btw: Are there any up to date build instructions for Mac OS X? I 
only found Linux instructions or can I use them on the mac as

OK, I'm only on a 32bit machine and therefore I never had to deal 
with those flags. 

Btw does your build run on 32bit machines as well? I remember that 
the project working on the "native VLC" for Mac OS X adopted 64bit 
but during this process lost the ability to run their builds on 
32bit machines.
