Are you using the debian source, or direct upstream source?
Normally what you do is call the configure script with the build
arch, and that _should_ be all you have to do. This basicly
looks something like in a debian/rules file (for autoconf >=
ifeq ($(DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE), $(DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE))
confflags += --build $(DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE)
confflags += --build $(DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE) --host $(DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE)
./configure $(confflags) other options
The call with --host is for cross building. This is not what
you're doing, and it even behaves different if you do that.
So the proper way to call it would be:
./configure --build i486-linux-gnu
It seems that the Debian openoffice.org package isn't doing this,
and it really should.
