If you need to port LibreOffice and build from source tarballs, it would be
best to start with the current development version (which will become 3.5.0);
the number of distribution files has been considerably reduced and changes
can be integrated more easily.
Have a look at this Makefile, it describes a minimal set of tarballs
needed to get a build going:
You'll need the core dictionaries and help files, and the ones described in
the MORE_DISTFILES list
If you run pkgsrc on your systems, the package should at the bare minimum
download the files for you.
