oh.. yes... first of all, we have to fix up the buildsystem.

If I'm able to compile openoffice succesfully, I will see, which
trick/changes might be nessesary. 
But, first I thought, it will be a good way to make deb of the subsystems of
the buildsystem, but does it make any sence?

Hmm.. OopenOffice is modular, you might be able to get only the chart-
application by apt-get install openoffice-chart for example, but this might
depend on some libs, which are hidden in the sourcetree.

I would pleased if I could compile and install openoffice from scratch to,
what will be installed by openoffice.

One time, you all will be emulated by linux!
