Hello, all

I am just getting started with LibreOffice development, and was following
the instructions at <http://www.libreoffice.org/get-involved/developers/>.
 I noticed that a couple of things should be added:

On my Ubuntu system (10.04), you need to install libgnomevfs2-dev in
addition to the openoffice.org build deps
You also need to run ./configure before make

It would be nice to put in a little warning that make will download close
to 1.5GB of data, and will kick off a build that is likely to take several

Thanks.  I hope to be contributing soon.
- Steve
