Reverting a change can only be a temporary solution. But it doesn't
work for me. With --libdir=/usr/LIBDIR it fails for me:

make DESTDIR=${pkgdir} install

==> Entering fakeroot environment...
==> Starting package_libreoffice()...
Installing in /usr/LIBDIR/libreoffice...
mkdir /usr/LIBDIR: Permission denied at /build/src/build/solenv/bin/ooinstall line 32
make: *** [install] Error 255

I can install it using "make OODESTDIR=$pkgdir install" without
the permission error I get with the revert patch. But the files don't go
to the desired directories. Who has changed it for 3.4? 
What was the intention and how should we use it?
