	Fine - again; I really think that starting at OO.o 2.1.0 is a waste of
time. Certainly, you will have lots of odd trouble compiling it.

	I would -really- strongly recommend building the very latest
libreoffice from git; as described here:


	That should work out of the box (as it were); though perhaps running:

	./g checkout libreoffice-3-5

	will give you a more reliable build.

	All the best,
