All above mentioned libs/modules as well as the following
ones have been introduced for the OOO340 release branch in order to get
SVG support based on librsvg:


The modules itself just contain the necessary patches to build and pack
those external libs during an OOo build.

As already said, the first ASF release of OOo wont't rely on librsvg
anymore, but most probably will use 'Apache Batik' as rendering backend
for SVG content. Since there's no build dependency and even no static
runtime dependency to librsvg (and in consequence to the other libs),
the above mentioned libs/modules should be removed from the ASF sources
of OOo.

Office will still be running after the removal, but will lack SVG
support until the new Batik based backend will be available.
