Your version of Java's original release is over 5 years old.  The _16 at 
the end of the version means that it's the 16th maintenance update. 
Current maintenance release of old Java is 18, but is probably too old 
to compile OOo-2.3, much less OOo-3.x.

Get 1.6.0_13 for Linux x64 from the above link (JDK only, the 4th 
download button, there is no FX bundle for Linux).
