I’ve normally built the OOo 1.9 series without mozilla bits with –disable-mozilla. The recent 1.9.54 now requires a bit of the mozilla-nss stuff which I’ve just used a few trivial hackarounds to get past. From our perspective the natural thing to do is simply use the system mozilla to link against anything that wants to do mozilla integration. And if there is perhaps some bits in OOo which don’t play well with the contemporary mozilla then to not compile those bits when in “using system mozilla” compile time mode. Rather than consider the approach of hauling a gigantic ooo-specific mozilla fork around with us.
So in my travels to see who has work in progress on effectively “–with-system-mozilla” I ran into this beast of an issue. 18 months of accumulated comments in one bug does not make for easy reading, it goes with this longed lived workspace
