I did a lot on simplifying the dependencies with OOo4Kids and  
OOoLight, but before I need to know what you need to simplify.

About binfilter, there are several issues :

1) the binfilter directory contains duplicated headers. I had a  
private discussion about that with Jens Heiner Linkenau, aka ause,  
and I can retrieve everything about the exact reasons why.

2) for compatibility reason, and as good compromise OpenOffice.org  
should to continue to provide a way to "open" old format files  
(staroffice 5.x for instance), and to propose to save them in a more  
recent.

3) build binfilter means there are a lot of warnings, and warnings  
are error.  I worked a lot on remove warnings on binfilter, and I can  
help on this side, if ever (or students can help for sure).


I got other ideas, about simplifying the build, but I'll keep them  
for a best moment (too early now)

I must have missed some mails. What is the current plan ?
