39The <filename>openoffice-&openoffice-version;-no-pam.patch</filename> is needed only if
40Linux PAM is not installed. The <filename>openoffice-&openoffice-version;-no-mozab.patch</filename>
41disables building of Mozilla Addressbook which causes build problems since OpenOffice
42includes precompiled Mozilla libraries that are incompatible with LFS. The
43<filename>openoffice-&openoffice-version;-test-bin-loc.patch</filename> corrects the location where
44the installation scripts look for the <command>test</command> executable.</para>
