I've seen it both referred to as goffice and libgoffice.  Debian
packages it as libgoffice.  From my understanding compiling in cairo
support is not recommended right now and it compiles fine without it.
Plus it won't compile on FC4 anyways - libgsf is too old.  Even the new
version of libgoffice (0.1.0) won't compile on FC devel because of the
version of libgsf.

I hope to make those changes you suggested and get the buzilla ticket
open tonight after work.  Hans has been gracious enough to offet to host
the two files for me.

Michael
