Good. Do you happen to know which environment variables were the problem 
in this case? It would be great to have a mechanism that avoided this 
source of confusion but cleaning up such environment variables. AFAIK 
most of them are supposed to be unset in the script written by the 
bootstrap step.

Wow, that tops the complexity of the AOO build experience quite a bit. 
For an open-source project I'm afraid we're still way too challenging, 
especially since the project was disrupted in the transition from the 
classic OOo build system to a gnumake based system.
