If you need to port LibreOffice and build from source tarballs, it would be best to start with the current development version (which will become 3.5.0); the number of distribution files has been considerably reduced and changes can be integrated more easily. Have a look at this Makefile, it describes a minimal set of tarballs needed to get a build going: http://pkgsrc-wip.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/pkgsrc-wip/wip/libreoffice/Makefile?hideattic=1&revision=1.17&view=markup You'll need the core dictionaries and help files, and the ones described in the MORE_DISTFILES list If you run pkgsrc on your systems, the package should at the bare minimum download the files for you. -- Francois Tigeot _______________________________________________ LibreOffice mailing list LibreOffice@lists.freedesktop.org http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/libreoffice
