11 Yes, that would be expected because bison is needed only at compile time,
12 not at run time.
14 I would be using libreoffice-bin too, except for a ridiculous change made
15 about a year ago in the way openoffice charts are scaled on the y-axis.
17 I complained bitterly on the openoffice 'chart' mail list, only to discover
18 that openoffice changed its perfectly good scaling algorithm to ape a change
19 made in M$ Office!
21 Nobody at would consider reverting that ridiculous mee-too
22 change, so I've been editing the open(libre)office source code to remove it
23 myself before compiling it. I was very disappointed to find a major open-
24 source project following M$ around like a hungry puppy :(
