[Libreoffice] libtextcat patches

LibreOffice does not build with a stock libtextcat.

The official version seems to be freezed in time (last update is dated
from 2003) and I understand the need to patch it (and add e.g. utf8
support), but the changes are so numerous it feels like a brand new

Since I'm banging my head against the build system, it will be certainly
easier for me to create a special-purpose package and run autogen.sh with
--with-system-libtextcat than try to fix the included version of libcat.

Are these patches only maintained in LO ?
Is there some upstream project managing the included version of libtextcat
I should be aware of ?
