	Great news :-) if you have lots of Linux machines, I hope you're using
icecream to harness that build horsepower for faster parallel builds.

	Anyhow - LibreOffice is quite an unusual package; a developer install
is entirely re-locatable; so if you have run:

	ooinstall <directory>

	you should be able to just copy that directory to another location or
another machine, and it should just work :-) [ assuming you compiled on
the oldest (version wise) distribution ].

	Of course; clean, distro packaging is a different matter, best to poke
Rene or Doko about that.
