looks like the dictionaries and hyphenation lists besides English(US) are still
installed, but not registered any more:

cat <<"EOF" >>${PREFIX}/OpenOffice.org1.1.2/share/dict/ooo/dictionary.lst
HYPH da DK hyph_da_DK
HYPH de DE hyph_de_DE
DICT en GB en_GB
HYPH en GB hyph_en_GB
DICT it IT it_IT
HYPH it IT hyph_it_IT
HYPH ru RU hyph_ru_RU

should do the trick.
