Building LO on illumos based OS

Hi, I could set up the correct env to build correctly up to soffice.bin and going on over extensions.
I ended up with a problem linking with Xm Motif libraries (a problem inside my distro that I'm solving).
I was wandering why Motif libraries are needed by these extension. Is it absolutely necessary?
Any way to skip Motif dependencies?

Re: Building LO on illumos based OS
usually libs should contain not just search paths but also the libraries
to be linked, e.g. in with a system nss i get:
export NSS_LIBS=$(gb_SPACE)-lssl3 -lsmime3 -lnss3 -lnssutil3 -lplds4
-lplc4 -lnspr4 -lpthread -ldl
also i guess only Sun ld knows -R, the GNU ld equivalent is -Wl,-rpath,
Well done!
With this env the build went on the unopkg.bin!
CONFIGURE_ENV += NSS_CFLAGS=-I/usr/include/mps
CONFIGURE_ENV += NSS_LIBS="-Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib/mps -L/usr/lib/mps -lssl3 -lsmime3 -lnss3 -
lnssutil3 -lplds4 -lplc4 -lnspr4 -lpthread -ldl"
I prefer to use my userland Makefile options instead of modifying the
Now the build is going on.....let's wait and see... ;)
Ok, it stopped later with this:
[build LNK] Executable/pluginapp.bin

/usr/gnu/bin/ld: cannot find -luno_sal
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
I guess I'm missing a library....not built?
