Plus I noticed that Ubuntu distributes an OOo (LibO in future, I

they do before shipping a distrib update/upgrade?

Not really, just that I am building the release versions of LibO so that
it can run on any machine where OOo runs (with only little notable
upgrade needed and it is glib 2.8.3+). This means that I build against
GTK+ 2.4.x series and some of the cool stuff is simply not there in that
version. Moreover, the build does not use to the maximum possible extent
any system library and dlopens instead of links some others.

That is why it is always preferable to rely on your Linux vendor to
provide the package for that distribution which might simply be smaller,
faster and better integrated. Although, the release build can be
basically used everywhere, with some limitations to the user experience.
