I noticed that there are no openoffice.org-xxx-2.0.4-5.4.17.2 rpms in Centos 
5  update.  So I tried to build openoffice 2.0.4-5.4.17.2 (sans language 
packs) on a x86_64 from RH 5 source rpm. The build bombed after an hour 
elapsed and it used up about 10 GB of space with an error about missing 
java. 

So I just blew it off, erased the files written by the build and decided to wait 
until the rpm showed up in the updates. I don't want to repeat that exercise 
if 2.0.4-5.4.17.2 is destined to show up in the updates. 

If not, does anyone have any idea  what java it needs (or what changes 
have be made to the spec file) to successfully build the rpm.

Thanks for any information on this problem.
