It is a bit of a pain to require a squeaky clean "no ports allowed"
environment just to build LibO, especially when I am trying to work on
other stuff for which ports is useful, and doesn't further the case for
others wanting to build, develop, debug, "do their own thing" with
LibreOffice on OSX.

However, thanks for the pointer to this.

I'll remove gconftool-2 from my ports then and try again. Thanks.
