OK, I see.. yet another flag to add to my build script :(.
I hope we get

because a lot packages are having problem with the new
FreeBSD 10 (configure gets confused with FreeBSD 1) and
it would be a mess to patch them in OOo too.

Now that I think of it, the external sources tarball is
rather dead end we should set system libraries for
everything by default.

Yes. I should mention that it's not really normai to build
OpenOffice using linux build instructions: we are used to
the port: a Makefile based script that fetches, patches,
build, installs, and even packages the code.

Maho is likely to update it soon so he will add that flag.
