 main objective here was to get OO3 to compile successfully and installed.
 I needed a word-processor and spreadsheet program and I prefer not to
 build Gnome (can never get it to work well--unlike KDE).
 > Well if you have the time to try a simple envelope or something to that
 effect, that would be great, but if not, no biggie.  The updated
 instructions that you've provided are much appreciated and should get
 somebody far enough along to try it out and get it updated.  On the Gnome
 front, the number of packages will be reduced considerably come 2.30/3.0,
 *presumably* making things much easier, but I doubt that is relevant to a
 KDE fan! ;-)

 Used both in the past (KDE/Gnome) always preferred KDE.  KDE4 looks nice
 but also looks like a possible dependency hair-ball.  I read that Gnome 3
 was due out this year.  I might have to take a look at it.

 On this LFS-SVN build I'm trying out Xfce-4.6.1 with Slim as graphical
 login manager. Xfce4 seems alot more functional than I remember.
