I'd thought we'd come to the conclusion on IRC to remove LibreOffice_Test:

The "start to pick up the various bootstrap variables defined [in 
ini-files] across instdir" is the part that makes it different (as most 
of those ini filese were either not present at all in solver, or present 
in a form specifically suited for built-time use).
