Just to add to the fun...

I have 5.3-BETA2, built without libc_r to ensure I don't get threading 
library conflicts (NOLIBC_R defined). I've made sure that the libc_r.* 
files are not present on the system.

When building OOo-1.1, the first failure is in gcc32 in the gcc-java 
stuff. It tries to link against libc_r, and I needed to define 
WITHOUT_LIBJAVA=yes to avoid this.

Then OOo fails to build because the embedded Mozilla 1.0.2 also tries to 
link against libc_r. I'm currently trying to rebuild WITHOUT_MOZILLA to 
see if this helps...

I'll try to remember to send-pr all this later once I've finished the 
build, consider this a minor 'heads up'
