This appears to be a strange font anti-aliasing issue that was triggered by
my system updates and affects only LibreOffice. If I go to Options -> View
and uncheck "Screen font anti-aliasing", then all of my menus return,
although the text in my documents and on the menus looks a bit outdated
(extremely sharp, and a bit hard to read unless I zoom in). Since this
affects all of my user logins I suppose I'll need to disable this on all of
them. I similarly tried removing the /opt/libreoffice/share folder, and it
had no affect on the disappearing menus. 

"Preview of Fonts" "Font History" and "Transparency" options all remain
grayed out in the Options ->View menu, and since I'm never in this menu I
couldn't say if they were before. I never tinker with these settings (I only
adjust auto-correct) so I'll assume that something has gotten crossed in the
last system update. Still, I can now use LibreOffice in the interim until I
do a fresh OS install next month. 

Toggling the anti-alias settings would be a good troubleshooting suggestion
if anyone else has similar issues.
