26The <filename>openoffice-&openoffice-version;-no-pam.patch</filename> is needed only if
27Linux PAM is not installed. The <filename>openoffice-&openoffice-version;-no-mozab.patch</filename>
28disables building of Mozilla Addressbook which causes build problems since OpenOffice
29includes precompiled Mozilla libraries that are incompatible with LFS. The
30<filename>openoffice-&openoffice-version;-test-bin-loc.patch</filename> corrects the location where
31the installation scripts look for the <command>test</command> executable.</para>
