AFAIK it is currently used for Outlook Express and Outlook address book
access.  Fridrich has some idea how to reimplement that without moz and
then it will be removed.  if you want to get your hands dirty with win32
programming you can help getting it removed faster :)

berkeleydb will be removed with Apache rebase.

migrationanalysis... don't know what that is, there is no dependency on
this module.

stlport is only necessary for compatibility of existing extensions that
may be linked against it; it is no longer used by LO code.
