Subject Re: Who wants to build OpenOffice?

RedHat Enterprise Linux 5.6 64-bit, gcc 4.1.2

./configure --disable-mozilla --without-junit

Adding --disable-randr to the configure flags succeeds.
However, I see the following error in the configure output:
The variable COMMON_BUILD_TOOLS is set to: $SRC_ROOT/external/common
Use of uninitialized value in string eq at ./set_soenv line 1987.
The variable TMPDIR            is set to: /tmp

Now running bootstrap...
