	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 it is the only effective way to
get backwards comaptibilioty

	AFAICS it is bad form to disable the feature during the release series
without discussing it and/or notifying the author etc. I imagine it was
inadvertent, and/or Cloph who normally does the compiles is on vacation
& Robinson has been standing in for a bit; I've no idea what happened
here. I took a look at configure.ac and distro-config's on the branch
and couldn't see what happened there either.

	What commit disabled that ?

	All the best,
