Hi all,

      Tring to compile on linux. Keep getting
"libreoffice- ***
gb_LinkTarget_use_external: unknown external: glew. Stop." This error pops
up in less than a minute after doing  "make build-nocheck".
After running make glew-1.12 was downloaded but not built.  I compiled and
installed libGlew-1.13 and then tried again with "--with-system-glew" and I
still get the same error. Any Ideas?
