Building LibreOffice for Android involves cross-compiling. The app uses
Android's Native Development Kit (NDK) for implementing parts of the app in
C/C++ code (as Android uses Java otherwise). The instructions on the wiki
page require the project to be built on the system before installing on a

They are as follows:
DCONF_CFLAGS=-pthread -I/usr/include/dconf -I/usr/include/glib-2.0

DCONF_LIBS=-ldconf -lgio-2.0 -lgobject-2.0 -lglib-2.0

It built successfully after making this change. But since dconf was
disabled, won't it lead to errors later during execution of the app?
