you need to install the LibreOffice rpms from as well - the SDK
has to match the installation.

the easiest way to do that is to "apt-get install rpm" and use the
"install" script that is in the root directory of the rpm-tar.gz.  you
don't even need to be root to run it, and can install in any directory
you want.
