I am disappointed that it can compiled because I have a i386 hardware
and numerous company have old i386 machines that are still working. I
don't speak of the i386 machine that was converted from the obsolete
Windows XP to Debian.

I have also surprised when I see the success of the compiling
of the 5.2.7 and earliest by the upstream release for i386


Was there all same upstream libraries used by Libreoffice 5.2.7
recompiled for Jessie-backports or only a selection of them?
Or is the compilation Debian chain the problem?
