Build prerequisites for other platforms are documented in the OOo wiki.

This stuff is not in the OOo code base since quite some time. We have 
moved it out as tarballs that are pulled from an external repo at the 
time of boostrapping. The OOo repo only contained some patches and dmake 
makefiles that have a copyright by Oracle.

Some of these external dependencies (not all) already can be avoided by 
configure switches.

As soon as my work on the missing file list will be finished, I can give 
more information about that, in case noone else will have done that 
until then.
