The staroffice-setup unzip the .so files into /tmp. Unfortunately our zips 
converts all lower case names into upper case by default. After that it 
doesn't find the lib as its name is "LIBVOS506LI.SO". 

You can override this by unpacking the libs by hand and setting 
"LD_LIBRARY_PATH" to the  path where the libs are.

But as our clone-clone is completetely broken which causes almost all newer 
linx binaries fail, you can as well forget about soffice >4.x until someone 
(jason?) finds the time to fix it.
