in my most recent installs, i put the bulk of the staroffice
distribution (e.g. ./setup -net or whatever it is) into

in this case, i'd just put the libs into a "./lib" subdirectory under
there, and add them to LD_LIBRARY_PATH when i ran 'soffice'.  more
info can be found in the staroffice install docs (iirc), as well as in
"man ldconfig".
