Hi Baris,

not that I'm an expert, but it's probably not advisable to follow the
instructions you found on vogella.de, as the bootstrap repository (and
the associated repositories) is now quite outdated.
Instead, it's seems the best to follow the wiki page (as Julien
already said). If you have trouble with Mozilla, just disabling it
might help you getting a usable first build (you need that AFAIK only
for macro security and mail merge) via adding --disable-mozilla when
running autogen.sh.
Build times for LibreOffice are a known problem. You might want to try
building with --disable-binfilter (but that'll mean you won't be able
to open old StarOffice/Ooo 1.0 files with your new build) to shorten
the time a little.
