Probably not. Did you try it with NetBSD's 5.x special X11 implementation
or with modular-xorg from pkgsrc ?

I never could get LO to build and run with the internal X11 version.

This is not the real error, which occured earlier in the build; a complete
build log should show it.

Or alternatively, the provided instructions should be enough to discover
what's going on.

I sadly never could get LibreOffice to build reliably 100% of the time on
NetBSD; more often than not some internal check broke and I had to disable
it. It seems there are some issues with threading / some parts of libc but
when I reported my findings to the lists, nobody seemed to be interested.

I don't run NetBSD anymore myself, so let the whole issue slip.

There are also slightly more up to date libreoffice* packages in pkgsrc-wip
you may find useful.
