Thanks, Thanks, Thanks and Thanks again!!!!
Changing my WRKDIRPREFIX (which was very long) to "/t", let me finally 
compile the latest OpenOffice-2.0.

This is obviously a bug in the sources themselves, but it's something we 
can live with. However, I think at least it should be mentioned 
somewhere, maybe some ECHO_MSG in a pre-everything: in the Makefile. It 
would have saved me several months and compilation retries.

  bye & Thanks
