There have been 2 clean builds (one was last night's build) since the 
sal issue first occurred.
The problem remains - something else is wrong.  This would be good to 
sort out.

I am not so sure that the build system is all that complex.  There are 
three main moving parts here:

  * The buildbot infrastructure.  This is perhaps the most complex part,
    but is mostly handled by Apache Infra (thanks Gavin)
  * The 'machine recipe' which can be seen in the JIRAs setting up the
    buildbots - base OS + packages/requirements.  Not rocket science,
    and very repeatable.
  * The 'build recipe' which is in the openoffice config for the
    buildbots.  These break down into get source (svn co), run build,
    upload results.  The syntax in the bb config is a bit cryptic, but
    you can figure it out pretty quick, at which point, there's nothing
    to exotic going on.

We have a combination of clean builds (svn clobber) and incremental 
builds going on.  The clobbered builds just take a long time.  I'm not 
sure that we are really at a point where we need to do a clean build for 
every platform, for every build.  It just sucks up bandwidth and 
resources, and takes longer.
All of this is of course covered by a healthy dose of IMHO.
