Yes. And actually I think *any* distro should.

The advantage is that you use from system what belongs to the system. Not
LibreOffice itself.

and the headers were always and still are a bug imho.

This is *exactly the point* of the option.
You say you want SYSTEM_MOZILLA_HEADERS, so they get used.

What exactly is your problem?

NO. Why on earth do people always want to remove options to make the build
sane and instead rely on copies headers from system stuff? (Which the npapi
headers are, no matter what you argue)

Stop this nonsense, please.

[ But yes, I needed http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-openoffice/libreoffice.git;a=blob;f=patches/getMIMEDescription-mismatch.diff;h=9924877e8501d0f0e2175f6c521c0bf88a1301ba;hb=refs/heads/debian-experimental-3.5 with recent headers ]

Yes, I use --with-system-mozilla-headers. Like I use *any* system-lib
or -header possible (also for sane, x11, etc.)
