Hi all,

After many emails I got in private about the jdk dependence of
OpenOffice I need to make some things more clear I guess :-)

- OpenOffice1.0x and OpenOffice1.1 havily use javac and other java binarys.
- OpenOffice 1.1 links against the javaruntimelib
- OpenOffice needs ANT to build, which depends itself on a JDK
- It's not possible to BUILD OpenOffice without a JDK.
- It's possible to RUN OpenOffice without a JDK.


>   OOo1.1 seems to link against a lib in the jdk. OOo will still run
>   without this library, but for compile it is definitly needed. Remove
>   the linux jdk dependency and use again our native one.
