If I understand you correctly, your question is if the supplied set of 
source files is missing something to
make this a working project.

As stated earlier, the list of source files provided look like a 1:1 
copy from the mercurial
repository available at This set of sources in itself is 
already build by many
individual contributers. So while there may be more in Oracles 
posession, the given source
set is IMHO a valid starting point for an OOo reboot.
