In theory, yes. But I fear there is too much work involved for this to work
in practice.

You're better off downloading the zipped git repository then `autogen.sh &&
make` on a machine that has full internet access, then copy the full
directory on a machine that is behind proxy.

The 3rdparty tars are not updated often, but when they are, you'll need to
manually download them.

NOTE: Use autogen.sh, NOT configure!

Besides not using configure, you probably don't want to `make install`.
There are two points here: first, if you have a release of LO installed,
you shouldn't mix it with a repo build, second, you can run any/all
applications directly from the instdir once you have a successful build. So
there is little benefit to installing a repo build, which is most probably
unstable anyway.
