Is it possible to build/install Libreoffice on a Linux system without

Not everybody likes to blow up his system installation with many unused

May I ask where you got the information you needed CUPS for LibreOffice [on Linux] to work?

I have been using LibreOffice on Linux since it came out and this is the first time I heard that statement.

I use Ubuntu 10.04LTS.

I wanted the PDF printer for my system, so I installed CUPS-PDF. I did not do it for LO. I wanted to be able to print to a PDF file for my browser and my email package. There is an issue with "export to PDF" that involves specialized fonts not exporting correctly, but "normal" fonts seems to work fine. So I use CUPS-PDF printer to print out these documents with specialized fonts and such that LO does not do properly. I am told that issue is being worked on.
