This means the other errors such as
  UniversalContentBroker::configureUcb(): No configuration
  ContentBroker::initialize - already initialized!
  PropertySetRegistry::getConfigProvider - No config provider!
are only caused by the first issue ?

I use these values:

export CFLAGS="-O -g -pipe"
export CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/pkg/include
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/pkg/lib

./autogen.sh \
	--with-max-jobs=2 --with-num-cpus=2 \
	--prefix=/usr/local/LibreOffice \
	--enable-symbols --enable-debug \
	--x-includes=/usr/pkg/include --x-libraries=/usr/pkg/lib \
	--with-lang="en" \
	--without-java \
	--disable-mozilla --disable-nss-module \
	--disable-neon --disable-Xaw \
	--with-system-headers --with-system-libs \
	--with-system-python --with-system-libtextcat \
	--without-system-jars \
	--without-system-db \
	--without-system-mdds \
	--without-system-vigra \
	--without-system-altlinuxhyph \
	--without-system-mythes \
	--without-system-odbc \
	--without-system-cppunit \

The environment variables are needed, otherwise some components do not find
the correct path for include files or libraries.

I tried both. I ported locally one of the LibreOffice patches which fixed
a similar crash to the system package but it had no effect.
Currently I'm using the internal fork.

Hmm. This could be a bit ugly.
I have applied the patch and I'm doing a partial build right now to see if it
changes anything.
