You have to know what are you looking for.
For that just put some diagnsostic in your java code and produce
Exception stack trace to find out the abusing class.

In your case it is the Interface ReportEngine.java,
because the exception is thrown while trying to load this class:
public class PentahoReportEngine implements ReportEngine

Then with this one liner figure out where is the second class is coming 

for file in `find /home/david/projects/libo/install/ -name "*.jar"`; do 
echo $file; jar -tf $file | grep ReportEngine; done

first one:

second one:

let's look inside it and see the difference:

ReportEngine in unoil.jar:
javap -classpath /home/david/projects/libo/install/program/classes/unoil.jar
public final class com.sun.star.report.ReportEngine extends 
     public static com.sun.star.report.XReportEngine 

and ReportEngine in sun-report-builder.jar

public interface com.sun.star.report.ReportEngine{
     public abstract com.sun.star.report.ReportJobDefinition 
     public abstract com.sun.star.report.ReportEngineMetaData getMetaData();
     public abstract com.sun.star.report.ReportJob 
createJob(com.sun.star.report.ReportJobDefinition)       throws 

So why it is so? Well apparently a new empty IDL was defined (since 4.1):


that collide with our own ReportEngine.java.

to rectify that i renamed our class to be ReportEngine2.java
and you test report from fdo#61726 works like a charm ;-)
