520 <para>
521 <parameter>--with-help</parameter>: Without this switch, the help files
522 are not built.
523 </para>
524
525 <para>
526 <parameter>--with-jdk-home=/opt/jdk</parameter>: This parameter will silence
527 a warning that the configure script attempted to find JAVA_HOME
528 automatically (even though that is passed in the environment). Omit this if
529 you disabled java.
530 </para>
531
532 <para>
533 <parameter>--with-myspell-dicts</parameter>: This switch adds myspell
534 dictionaries to the <application>LibreOffice</application> installation
535 set.
536 </para>
537 <!-- Unrecognized as of 6.2.0.3
538 <para>
539 <parameter>- -with-alloc=system</parameter>: This switch tells
540 <application>LibreOffice</application> to use the system allocator
541 instead of its internal one.
542 </para>
543 -->
544 <para>
545 <parameter>--with-system-boost</parameter>: This switch enables using
546 system boost. From time to time, recent versions of boost break
547 the build of libreoffice. In this case, it is possible to use the
548 bundled copy of boost, by removing this flag.
549 </para>
550
551 <para>
552 <parameter>--disable-dconf</parameter>: This switch disables compiling
553 <application>LibreOffice</application> with the
554 <application>GNOME DConf</application> configuration system support.
555 </para>
556
557 <para>
558 <parameter>-disable-gtk -enable-gtk3</parameter>: This pair of switches
559 tell the configure script to use <application>GTK+-3</application> instead
560 of <application>GTK+-2</application>.
561 </para>
562
563 <para>
564 <parameter>--without-junit</parameter>: This switch disables the tests
565 for the deprecated HSQLDB driver which is written in Java. If you wish
566 to build this driver replace this switch with the set of switches
567 described below after '--without-java'.
568 </para>
569
570 <para>
571 <parameter>--without-system-dicts</parameter>: This switch disables use
572 of dictionaries from system paths, so the ones installed by this package
573 are used.
574 </para>
575
576 <para>
577 <parameter>--disable-odk</parameter>: This switch disables installing the
578 office development kit. Remove if you want to develop a
579 <application>LibreOffice</application> based application.
580 </para>
581
582 <para>
583 <parameter>--enable-release-build=yes</parameter>: This switch enables a
584 Release Build. <application>LibreOffice</application> can be built as a
585 Release Build or as a Developer Build, because their default installation
586 paths and user profile paths are different. Developer Build displays the
587 words "Dev" and "Beta" in several places (e.g, menu and splash screen).
588 </para>
589
590 <para>
591 <parameter>--enable-python=system</parameter>: This switch tells
592 <application>LibreOffice</application> to use installed
593 <application>Python 3</application> to build the translations instead of
594 the bundled one.
595 </para>
596
597 <para>
598 <parameter>--with-system-*</parameter>: These switches prevent
599 <application>LibreOffice</application> from trying to compile its own
600 versions of these dependencies. If you've not installed some of the
601 dependencies, remove the corresponding switches.
602 </para>
603
604<!--
605 <para>
606 <command>CPPFLAGS='-DU_USING_ICU_NAMESPACE=1' make ...</command>: <xref
607 linkend="icu"/> has removed an implicit namespace <quote>using</quote>
608 from its headers files. Setting <envar>U_USING_ICU_NAMESPACE</envar> to
609 1 allows to restore the former behavior, which is required for building
610 <application>libreoffice</application>.
611 </para>
612-->
613 <para>
614 <command>make distro-pack-install</command>: this does a normal
615 install, but if you add a DESTDIR environment variable it will also
616 install a lot of (text) gid_Module_* files in the DESTDIR, to help
617 distributions which want to break the package into parts.
618 </para>
619
620 <para>
621 <option>--with-parallelism=&lt;count&gt;</option>: This switch
622 tells <application>LibreOffice</application> to use &lt;count&gt; CPU
623 cores to compile in parallel. (Do not include literal angle brackets.)
624 The default is to use all available cores on the system.
625 </para>
626
627 <para>
628 <option>--disable-cups</option>: Use this switch if you don't need
629 printing support.
630 </para>
631
632 <para>
633 <option>--disable-dbus</option>: Use this switch if you've not installed
634 D-Bus-1.8.0 or later. It also disables Bluetooth support and font install
635 via PackageKit.
636 </para>
637
638 <para>
639 <option>--disable-firebird-sdbc</option>: By default, the ability to
640 connect to a <application>firebird</application> database is enabled.
641 Add this switch if you do not need that feature.
642 </para>
643
644 <para>
645 <option>--disable-gstreamer-1-0</option>: Use this switch if you have not
646 installed <xref linkend="gst10-plugins-base"/>.
647 </para>
648
649 <para>
650 <option>--disable-gtk3</option>: Use this switch if you have not installed
651 <application>GTK+-3</application>, or if you have installed it but wish
652 to use <application>GTK+-2</application> (the menu icons differ).
653 <!-- Note that a <application>GTK+-3</application> build still
654 requires <application>GTK+-2</application> to build the gtk-plugin.-->
655 </para>
656
657 <para>
658 <option>--disable-postgresql-sdbc</option>: This switch disables compiling
659 <application>LibreOffice</application> with the ability to connect to a
660 <application>PostgreSQL</application> database. Use it if you have not
661 installed <application>PostgreSQL</application> and you do not want
662 <application>LibreOffice</application> to compile its bundled copy.
663 </para>
664
665 <para>
666 <option>--enable-lto</option>: This switch will enable Link Time
667 Optimization, which results in slightly smaller libraries (about 40 MB).
668 This is said to make <application>LibreOffice</application> programs
669 load faster (and possibly run faster, e.g. when recalculating a
670 spreadsheet). On an 8-core machine with 16GB of memory, the difference
671 in compile times was minimal, but an extra 2GB was used for the work
672 files. On machines with fewer processors or a lack of memory, the compile
673 might be much slower.
674 </para>
675
676 <para>
677 <option>--without-java</option>: This switch disables
678 <application>Java</application> support in
679 <application>LibreOffice</application>. Java is needed for the
680 deprecated HSQLDB driver, which allows reading databases created by
681 other programs or in earlier versions of libreoffice
682 <application>base</application>.
683 </para>
684

686 <option>--with-junit=/opt/ant/lib/junit-4.12.jar</option> and

688 Those options are needed if you want to run the tests.
689 </para>
690
691 <para>
692 <option>--without-fonts</option>: <application>LibreOffice</application>
693 includes a number of third-party TrueType fonts. If you have already
694 installed some or all of the same fonts, you may prefer to use the system
695 versions.
