While openjdk is now the default Java when building LibreOffice, this
can be changed by setting the JAVA environment variable at build time e.g.
    JAVA=jdk sh LibreOffice.SlackBuild
(openjdk8 is another supported option)

In the case of building with JAVA=jdk, apache-ant is still required and
would now need to added manually. I'll add that to the README.

No such inconvenience with the binary repackaging libreoffice package
since there is no code compilation going on there.
