That begs the Question should we add a section to the overall build
guide for CentOS6? If yes I can add the section as a clone of the
CentOS5 Guide with all the proper warnings and notes about it needing
updating for the CentOS6 specifics.

Also will the top level build guide at
https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/Building_Guide_AOO need
updating?
