No, it's not fixed yet.  I am still building OOo packages with an installed
Blackdown JDK.  Peter is working on removing Java still.  We have a much
easier task than Netbeans, since Java support is an optional extra, and very
little of the build is done using a Java compiler.

The majority of the packaging problems so far have been compilation

It is not necessary for users to install a JDK to run OOo, but that's not
good enough for main yet.
