204 the build process will compile and install its own (often older)

519 the suite can be started with the <command>libreoffice</command> command
520 and the modules with the <command>libreoffice

522 respectively, where <replaceable>&lt;module&gt;</replaceable> is one of
523 base, calc, draw, impress, math, web, or writer. Modules cannot be started
524 using their shell starting script names (see "Installed Programs", below),
525 if LO_PREFIX is other than <filename class='directory'>/usr</filename>,

561 what languages to support. To list several languages, separate them with
562 a space. For all languages, use

600 system boost. From time to time, recent versions of boost break
601 the build of libreoffice. In this case, it is possible to use the
602 bundled copy of boost, by removing this flag.

632 <parameter>--enable-release-build=yes</parameter>: This switch enables a
633 Release Build. <application>LibreOffice</application> can be built as a
634 Release Build or as a Developer Build, because their default installation
635 paths and user profile paths are different. Developer Build displays the
636 words "Dev" and "Beta" in several places (e.g, menu and splash screen).

665 install a lot of (text) gid_Module_* files in the DESTDIR, to help
666 distributions which want to break the package into parts.

723 dialogs if GTK+-3, Qt5 and Plasma are all available.
724 </para>
725
726 <para>
727 <option>--enable-lto</option>: This switch will enable Link Time
728 Optimization, which results in slightly smaller libraries (about 40 MB).
729 This is said to make <application>LibreOffice</application> programs
730 load faster (and possibly run faster, e.g. when recalculating a
731 spreadsheet). On an 8-core machine with 16GB of memory, the difference
732 in compile times was minimal, but an extra 2GB was used for the work
733 files. On machines with fewer processors or a lack of memory, the compile
734 might be much slower.
735 </para>
736
737 <para>
738 <option>--without-java</option>: This switch disables
739 <application>Java</application> support in
740 <application>LibreOffice</application>. Java is needed for the
741 deprecated HSQLDB driver, which allows reading databases created by
742 other programs or in earlier versions of libreoffice
