OOo2 Build Instructions Gimped

I tried building OOo2 again using the instructions in the book seeing as
people are saying they have successful builds, but I don't see how they
could without a lot of monkeying on their own.
The bsh download is "..b4-src.tar.bz2" but the copy and decompression
command references "..b4.tar.bz2" and the build system requires
"..b4-src.tar.gz". And why do you decompress it? I thought the build
scripts did that in the appropriate locations; I never decompressed it
when I was building OOo2 before.
I submitted a patch a while back (most of which looks like it has been
cleaned out) that removed erroneous optimizations in the code but you
still have the sed in the book for unxlngi6.mk. There are a few files
that have this problem and unxlngi6.mk is no longer one of them so the
sed doesn't do anything. You'll have to run a "grep -lr 'mtune'" and
"grep -lr 'mcpu'" to find them, I didn't make a patch.
There is no mention in the dependencies about Gnome-vfs but the build
requires it unless --disable-gnome-vfs is added to the configure.
Under the latest SVNs, tcsh is gimped such that the bootstrap command
fails unless you 'unset LS_COLORS'.
Using the instructions to swap in --with-system-mozilla (with an added
--with-firefox) to use the firefox ldap, the build fails as before. Why
isn't David's libsec patch in the book? It seems retarded to build a
full mozilla suite just to have an office suite, especially when a
browser is already on the system.
