Could you explain how this statement is related to the problem described 
by Joel?
He tries to confirm that my patch 
(https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/248/) is working on current master:
1. apply my patch
2. add --enable-mozilla to autogen.lastrun
3. make clean && make dev-install
4. run compiled soffice.bin --base
5. "Thunderbird/Icedove Address Book" appears in "Connect to an existing 
database" combo box.
