improving pavel's open office build system

(Comments)

Started working on OpenOffice.org stuff again today, wanting to get splash screens etc in. So I set up Pavel's nice build system . It uses ccache so you can pull out a fresh source tree each time without worrying about recompiling stuff.

Except it took hours to get it downloaded. So in the mean time, I reconfigured it to be more modular, so options per platform are listed in separate files. And added a list of language fields (since the openoffice build system seems to have an insane variety of ways of referring to a language) which you can then pull out whatever you want at the right time. Then in languages.selected, I can just say to following to only merge in the appropriate languages:

MERGE_BASTARDS="afrikaans northernsotho zulu"

Trying to build now... :-) If it works, will probably put the build scripts into our cvs...
