"sb118: independent of PKGFORMAT, always build a default-language 
openoffice product also in archive format, so that tests that require an 
OOo installation (like smoketestoo_native) have one available" and 
"sb118: always set PKGFORMAT (so that always building 
openoffice_en-US.archive in instsetoo_native/util also works on 
Windows)" for how this was achieved in OOo times.  On all platforms, it 
always built an additional archive installation set in module 
insetsetoo_native, so that during the later build of module 
smoketestoo_native that archive installation set could be unpacked and 
used for the smoke test (as well as any subsequenttests; only on Windows 
the installation set was not unpacked once to solver/*/installation, but 
for each test anew to a temp folder, to work around problems with long 
file paths).

No idea how much of that got broken in the meantime though.  (As for 
non-Windows, the solver/*/installation set used by the various tests is 
now produced by another means via "make dev-install".)
