	Interesting; we should work out what is best to do there I guess.

	We compile LibreOffice on our oldest Linux base-line, which is
something horribly old; that is because all newer releases are backwards
compatible, but no newer release makes it easy to compile for older
systems; sad but true.

	Actually, I'm really surprised that this was turned off without any
discussion / notification to you. That's really not ideal; Cloph is away
on vacation just now - and we've had Robinson doing interim release mgmt
- but ... I'll push to the ESC agenda to investigate - it seems most
