I have no idea how cross-compilation is currently implemented, but can't that
be done with the same build directory name for all platforms ? I would think
the path which matters most in the end is the installation one...

Can't we at least get rid of the '350' subdirectory ? Apart from $OUTPATH it
seems to always be empty.

Due to the way the build system works, I have to put many of the lib/
subdirectories in LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Otherwise, LibreOffice can simply not be
packaged in pkgsrc:


For now, I only do this for DragonFly and NetBSD but this is not ideal and I will
certainly blow up some limit if I add all the Linux variants...
