It is a standard Linux system, and OpenOffice should build and run on 
all recent Linux systems. For sure it would be a bug (unrelated to this 
discussion) if our official RPM packages did not run on it.

But I don't believe we have "supported" and "unsupported" Linux systems, 
as in general any recent system with standard system tools will work. 
However, I perfectly understand that you must start with something, and 
starting with what the buildbots use is indeed the most reasonable 
choice. Then, if adaptations are needed, we can find the patterns and 
apply them.

It breaks the same way on my system. I explicitly tried with both 
--with-stlport and --without-stlport since the default here depends on 
whether you build on a 32 bit or 64 bit system.

This is something we can discuss. Supporting an obsolete compiler by 
being incompatible with a newer one is understandable only if there are 
advantages. I believe that other developers encountered this problem 
already; they will be able to give better advice.

Thanks for investigating. As for the patch, I already included earlier 
in this thread.

Then the build breaks in another file due to a conversion that my gcc 
does not support/admit, but this should be quite unrelated...
