Not everywhere. If your package expects a JDK path set and that is set to
6 in debian/rules (if you're not using the default) you need source changes.
As for - you guess it - LO in the old times back then. 6 is hardcoded in
rules (and for the build-dep in control).
Running a testbuild with 7 now, but LO would need a full upload :/
