Cleanups are boring but not difficult. I do think we should
focus on having things build first though.

I don't know if someone wants to spend time and effort on it
later on but we can import some of the LibreOffice enhancements:
if the changes involve only removing code we don't need a
license for that.

Great idea :) Have you seen where the GNU regex code is?
I suspect GNU regex is the only piece we need to replace,
the rest of the packages with problematic licenses can
either be made optional or removed.
