Currently it does not work out of the box but it can be fixed. I
tested libreoffice-3-4 branch. On Linux it complains about SO_PACK
environment variable which is not set. But some packages are built
anyway. Install prefix is /opt/lo-dev/.

On Windows it wants to package jre which is not there. So:
$ touch ../../solver/300/wntmsci12.pro/bin/jre-6u22-windows-i586.exe
$ dmake openofficedev
And it packages LibO-dev! It can be installed parallel to LibreOffice.
Note: I tried en-US only. It would have taken ages to build all
languages on my current Windows box. After some fixing and testing on
master this target can be used in next beta cycle.
