I've just installed your package and I have to say I'm very glad that
LibreOffice with version 3.4.0 for the first time respects system font

For previous versions, I have to build it from source (for slack 13.0
so cannot get from Eric) to have a package that looks 'right' rather
than the one from provided binaries with an 'ugly' look.

Considering building 3.3.2 took up to 9GB in about 5 hours on an Core
i3 machine, this change in LO of course will save me a lot of time in
the future. I will just use the provided binaries instead of building

Now with LibreOffice respects system font settings along with Google
Chrome and Opera, I wish Firefox will soon implement this 'technique'
too in their provided binaries.
