Yes and no. Usually external project would be build in modules like 
stlport, openssl etc.  The archives with the sources would be in the 
above url. But what is missing
are the patches to those external source archives.
Those patches usually contain modifications so that the source in 
questions builds in the OOo build environment and also on all platforms 
supported by OOo.
Then it may also contain additional changes or fixes that are not yet
