Thos who have epm installed, beware !! When you run dmake, build makes use of system installed epm (if you have one), and the epm (version-4.0) complains that the productname contains characters other than letters and numbers ( Productname used by build contains hyphens and dots) !! Thus, the build process stops without any package being built.

The solution is to pass the argument --with-epm=internal to the configure script while running configure. This would make build to use the specially patched version of the epm included in its source tree and the package gets delivered successfully.

You don't need to install tcsh if you pass --with-use-shell=bash to the configure script. (found in OpenOffice 2.2.0)
