OK. 4.1.4 is a good fallback solution for important but not critical 
bugs anyway.

I've built AOO413 on Linux-64 with the following details:
- CentOS 5 VM as described in
- Source revision r1761818
- Real source revision r1761381 (both are obtained using "svn info"; the 
latter is the one that matters, as the former increases for any commit 
in any ASF project)
- Build scripts as per

Sample builds (English, German, Italian) from a few hours ago -but not 
from my latest build- are at

There are a few differences in the configure options, namely:

1) Build Version is a bit richer in 
but I went for the more compact one from the 4.1.2 scripts

2) Language list is much longer in the 4.1.2 scripts and I maintained 
that one - even though I usually build with fewer languages

3) Package format does not have "installed" in the 4.1.2 scripts, which 
looks OK (we only ship RPM+DEB)

4) We were using ant 1.7.1 (from the repositories?) for 4.1.2 builds, 

; we download and use 1.9.7 now; I haven't checked this properly yet, 
but we had a recent discussion with Kay saying that configure (which 
checks for ant >= 1.7.0) was wrong.

5) We are now explicitly passing --without-stlport which looks good 
since (if I recall correctly) this was the default anyway.

6) We are now passing --without-junit ; I'm still not completely clear 
if this makes any difference in our case.
