It requires a patch similar to the OOo_1.1.4-no_pam-1.patch except that
it also has to remove a big chunk of code from the configure script (so
it doesn't check for PAM and fail). There isn't a --disable-pam option,
unfortunately. The patch should still be in the archives somewhere from
when I was playing with OOo2 a while back; I don't have access to it at
the moment to attach it.
It is optional (with the patch) in the same way as it's optional for
OOo_1.1.4 in the stable branch.
