If the build system has been improved and binary builds provided by the 
project are now fine (in OpenOffice 3.4.0 the build system did not 
cleanup previously downloaded extensions, resulting in the Spanish and 
Italian dictionaries not being updated), it's of course OK for me. What 
I'd like to ensure is just that this doesn't happen with the current 
build process, otherwise it might be better to backport the fix.

I might have a look, but only in the pre-build phase (which should be 
enough: you don't need to fully build the office to check what version 
of the extension is downloaded).
