Nice to see someone else interested in this port !

On a related note, i have started a related effort on Open Office for 
kids a few years ago [1]. It is a lightweight version of Open Office (it 
was before LibreOffice fork). At that time, it was better to start with 
that as some dependencies not available under Haiku were already 
removed, like Java (though no longer a problem under Haiku). I have not 
a lot of time to work on that, but still ready to give a hand in such an 
effort. With OOo4Kids, i was up to the point where everything compile, 
but the graphic layer (VCL) is mostly an empty shell. There might be 
interesting ideas and/or code available there.
The OOo4Kids wiki is currently down. The latest version of the document 
describing my build process is available in [2]. There is some 
workarounds described in this document. I am not sure all apply for 
LibreOffice. The last build was done on Haiku without package 
management. This explain references to haikuporter in the instructions.

Good luck !
