Urrkkkk...  That is a show stopper to me: I have to deal with uSoft documents,
and StarOffice seems to deal with uSoft formats alot better than Applix...

Any chance of the next set of RPM's getting built without that dependency?
Or is there a hack around that can keep things working without having
to have the new C library, or (least desirable) a hack around that
will leave StarOffice usable...

Bleeding edge is fine, but I prefer to give blood at a single blood bank
at a time (in my case, the Gnome one), rather than all of them simultaneously...
