Both issues appear to be linking related.

What I am finding lately is that the build system is very
fragile: it mostly works but will fail if you want to exercise it.

On FreeBSD, at least:

- the build fails if we try to build it with the system-jpeg.
- the build doesn't detect httpclient
- the option to build the lgpl libwpd doesn't build writerperfect.
- Using system icu will break the build.

Not to mention the patches we carry locally.

I am afraid the problem is starting to take time from doing real
fixes (oh yes there are still issues building with jdk7) and
enhancements so I think I will be moving to the buildsys
branch and focus on the build system.
