Hi Pranav,

I've built LibreOffice recently on Archlinux, but didn't use PKGBUILD switches yet.

I had problems with building LO on Archlinux around the end of January, I guess, and it turned out that there were two conflicts:
  - extra/nvidia package - NVIDA drivers; I've set up bumblebee for NVIDIA Optimus and after that I wasn't able to build LO again (it crashed on tests with OpenCL, IIRC),
  - problem with new packages, I didn't have time to examine it, maybe it was a bug in one of them or some changes in libraries (package replacement?); I downgraded system to the version from the 12th of December 2015 and I built LO without errors.

I've also built successfully LO three days ago (without updating system before), so from LO side everything is OK. If you don't have bumblebee and still have problems, it seems that using switches from that PKGBUILD is the only solution for fresh Archlinux after the New Year. I suppose that only one switch (maybe three at most) is necessary. Let me now which one, if you find out ;-).
