Building OpenOffice.org for the Mac is easy

Yesterday I started the second time building OpenOffice.org (OOo) under the Mac (INTeL) platform. Eric B. has given me the link to the documentation to build the Aqua version under Mac OS X and I started the game again....

Months (years?) before I did the same on the PowerPC version of my iMac to build the X11 version of OOo and it was a hell. You need to get packages downoaded from elsewhere and had to put it under the build tree, the manual and the process was very tricky. It did not work and I have given up. I am not a porter or a developer who is able to understand the problem statements of the build environment, I am a tester and need a build to test as fast a possible...

Today it was totally different and very easy. Only one typo in the Wiki page and the rest was described very easy. I was able to start - after re-installing the Xcode package from Apple where Ant was missing?!? - around 3.40 p.m. and as I looked onto the machine again (on the way to bed) around 10.20 p.m. everything was done and the build was packaged.... Wow!
