what's claimed to be missing FWIW is the help files.

So, does "make dev-install" work ? That might be what you really want
anyway if you want to hack on libreoffice. If not, then it might be a
little bug in the make install logic somewhere that it assumes that help
has been built. You could workaround that with ./configure --with-help
which will pull down the help submodule and presumably then that'll
build and be available to keep make install happy.
