I'm not aware that this is possible, as LibreOffice (like
OpenOffice) is designed as an "integrated package" containing
various interconnected parts of office productivity programs.
So I assume it's not easy to build _only_ one component.

In case you are intending to "just" install a text processing
program, try AbiWord. It is the TP designed to be used with
Gnome, but builds independently (even though it requires lots
of Gtk dependencies). If installed, you will "only" have the
text processing program -- no spreadsheet, no database, no
presentation graphics. It's a quite versatile program and can
even read outdated MICROS~1 memory garbage formats. :-)
