Comment(by dj@…):

 Looks like all that is needed is to reselect from language options inside
 one of the programs.  To do this, clear the "(Default) - English (USA)"
 and explicitly select "English (USA)"....or other.  However, only en, de,
 and fr (classic) are installed by default (the ones with hyphenation and
 thesaurus.  You'll need to install any additional dictionaries by copying
 them to from the source tree.

 cp -v dictionaries/unxlngi6.pro/bin/dict-*.oxt \

 Same thing for other extensions in the following directories:
 cp -v sdext/unxlngi6.pro/bin/*.oxt \
     reportbuilder/unxlngi6.pro/bin/report-builder.oxt \
     swext/unxlngi6.pro/bin/wiki-publisher.oxt \

 I'm trying to think of a nicer way to add this because the above will exit
 non-zero if one of the extensions were not built, but I'm not adding five
 additional code blocks to the instructions.

 Finally, re-add all extensions as shared:

 for i in /opt/openoffice-3.2.1/share/extension/install/*.oxt
     /opt/openoffice-3.2.1/program/unopkg add --shared --verbose $i

 I used a loop here because it will bomb on the ones that are already
 installed, it will also require a yes key-press for the extensions that
 aren't dictionaries.  Could probably pipe from yes.
