Have you tried "--enable-graphite=no"? That ought to work.

Normally libo will be built with stlport on windows which has hash_map 
in the std (_STLP_STD ) namespace rather than stdext. The windows stl 
library has hash_map in stdext. If _STLPORT_VERSION is defined, then 
stdext should be aliased automatically to the stlport version using the 
graphite-2.3.1.patch in WinFont.h:
namespace stdext = _STLP_STD;

I'm not sure why the logic is breaking for you, but perhaps this will 
give you some clues.
