I'm running on a server which has no X libraries installed. I noticed
that running LO locally on my Mac for a document conversion takes about
5 seconds, on the server it took almost 3 minutes. My suspicion was
that the X output got in the way, causing slowdown. That's why I wanted
to build a LO without any of the X overhead... but that seems to be
difficult already. (No, LO is not a debug build :-))
BTW, a similar failure happens for older versions of LO as well:
libreoffice-22.214.171.124 > ./autogen.sh --without-java --enable-headless --with-theme=no
configure.ac:2113: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_DEFINE
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.
Failed to run autoconf at ./autogen.sh line 176.

Ok, I'll post in their forums and see what comes up.
