If I remember correctly I had the same problem when first trying to 
build LibO on kubuntu 11.10 (thus in a KDE environment) and I solved it 
by disabling Oxigen style in System settings panel, more precisely in 
"Application Appearance"/"GTK+ appearance"/"Widget style", and setting 
it to Raleigh. Probably I also rebooted the machine before trying to 
build LibO again. This solution will probably affect the appearance of 
LibO itself. I didn't test other configurations, my machine is much 
slower than yours.

Hope this helps, let me know if you find better solutions.
