Install PAM?  ;-)  I have no idea honestly...have to dig into the build
scripts and add the patch someplace, but do you need just the gcc-3.4
fixes?  I got those ready for openoffice-1.1.3....assuming gcc >= 3.4.2,
but doesn't work for 3.4.1.  Have a look at

You still need the g++ symlink for stlport, (or a patch, but the symlink
was a little easier), and you'll need to copy stlport-4.6.2.tar.gz to
stlport/download/.  The 1.1.4-no_pam patch should apply with no offset
to 1.1.3...actually all of those should apply to 1.1.4 except maybe the
gcc342 patch...I've not tried the patch yet nor have I even attempted
ooo-1.1.4 with gcc-3.4.x yet.

You also might want to dig through the additional patches included with
ooo-build.  There are a few of them that are nice to speed up the build.
One of which *is* the gcc-3.3 patch currently in BLFS that removes the
unneeded icu extras.  The one problem I had with current ooo-build-1.3.7
is that no mater how I configured, it wanted both kde and gnome headers
for config_office/configure for some reason.  Haven't had time to get
back to that yet.
