+Go-oo is a fork of the Office Suite.
+Go-oo has built in OpenXML import filters and it will import your Microsoft
+Works files. Compared with up-stream OO.o, it has better Microsoft binary
+file support (with eg. fields support), and it will import WordPerfect
+graphics beautifully. If you are reliant on Excel VBA macros - then Go-oo
+offers the best macro fidelity too. If you expect your spreadsheets to
+calculate compatibly, or you get embedded Visio diagrams in your documents,
+you'll want Go-oo.
+NOTE: This build needs about 12 GB in $TMP and the source is about 430 MB
+to download. It also takes hours to compile. This build is still a "work
+in progress" - due to the long build time, it is very hard to QA test.
+NOTE2: Don't forget to source /etc/profile if you just installed jdk. In fact,
+it is a good idea to do this after you use su and before you run any SlackBuild.
+This requires xulrunner, Archive-Zip, icu4c, apache-ant, and jdk from /extra in
+Optional requirements are avahi, openclipart, ORBit2, GConf, and gnome-vfs.
+Variables that can be passed to the SlackBuild script:
+ARTPATH Path to openclipart; leave unset to disable.
+NVIDIA=no Turns off an nvidia build work around.
+LINGUAS_OOO Sets the languages to add.
+PLUGIN=no Disable openoffice's mozilla plugin.
+KDE=no Disable KDE4 UI.
+GTK=no Disable GTK UI.
+GNOME=yes Enables optional gnome bits.
+MYCONF Used to pass extra configure options.
