You have these pages (sure outdated):

there was a graph with the build directories dependencies, but I can't
find it.

You get an idea of the modules on which the current module depends, by
looking at the first line <module>/prj/build.lst

a build --all in that module will build all its dependencies.

a change in this file does not need recompiling, simply copy it in the
basis directory of the installation built by yourself

<basis dir>/share/config/soffice.cfg/modules/sdraw/menubar/menubar.xml

Note that the UI configuration manager will look first in your user
directory, if you have changed that file via Tools - Customize, you will
have your version in your user dir., and it will take precedence over
the version in the basis folder. So, if you modified the menu in the
user interface, copy it to

If you made several changes, and this thing of copying files around
seems too much complicated, simply rebuild the whole thing and generate
new install sets.
