Just for reference, does this work instead of the current snippet in soffice?:
if [ -e $HOME/.sversionrc ]; then
profiles=`cat $HOME/.sversionrc | grep ^OpenOffice.org | cut -d"=" -f2 | sed -e s,file://,, | xargs`
for p in $profiles; do
if [ -e $p/soffice ]; then
office=`readlink $p/soffice | sed -e s,program/soffice,,

if [ -f $dialog_xlc -a -f $script_xlc ]; then
sed -i "s/.*library:name=\"WebWizard\".*$office.*//" $dialog_xlc $script_xlc

That didn't and won't change, i'll only keep this snippet for 2.4.x (lenny).
Experimentals 3.0.0 packages didn't have it in any of its releases anyway ;-)
