Summary so far: I have been trying to update a download from head (not 
sure what it is called) to version 3.3.0. I have done, with thanks to 
Norbert for his assistance:

git-checkout -b libreoffice-3-3-0 origin/libreoffice-3-3-0
./autogen.sh --with-num-cpus=2 --disable-mozilla
make 2>&1 | tee build.log

All goes well until 38666 lines of output through the build, when this

  it seems that the error is inside 'instsetoo_native', please re-run build
  inside this module to isolate the error and/or test your fix:

cd /home/house/work/libreoffice1/libo
source ./LinuxX86Env.Set.sh
cd instsetoo_native

when the problem is isolated and fixed exit and re-run 'make' from the 
sometimes (sadly) it is necessary to rm -Rf unxlngi6.pro in a module.
make: *** [all] Error 1


Noting the mention of dmake, I checked the version. My dmake reports its 
version as 4.12, so it doesn't seem that is the problem.

Any suggestions gratefully accepted.
