Hi Dan,

Some comments: #4 was a very large download. What is in it? (the master

Yes, that is normal, you have downloaded the whole source code tree for the current master build version of LO. In core/libo, you will find a series of folders, each one corresponding to different parts of LO that are either systematically built, or else are optional build modules for some of the extensions or other goodies.

build is this large???) On #5, I found the purpose for each of the
switches, and I understand their purposes. I have mysql installed on my
laptop that I will use to build the connector. So, the mysql config
files should have the location to the executable file. For what it is
worth, I have 3.5 GB of SWAP on my hard drive.
      As of the time I am sending this email, I am entering #5 into a
terminal. I will keep you abreast of my progress.

Good effort so far, now all you have to do is wait :-))
The total time for building LO the first time, including the connector, with a config like the one you mention, is about 24 hours. Seeing as you are only building the mysql connector in addition to the standard extensions, it might be shorter. I regularly build with more extensions (extra templates, extra gallery, googledocs, etc) so it takes more time on my machines.

      My very first problem: (Line 201 of here is the error

checking for GCONF... yes
checking whether to enable GNOME VFS support... yes
checking for GNOMEVFS... no
configure: error: Package requirements (gnome-vfs-2.0 >= 2.6.0 ) were not met:
No package 'gnome-vfs-2.0' found

I included the line about GCONF because that is the last line that is good. The next line seems to involve pkg-config which is only in line 36 of Perhaps line 36 should have # at the beginning to change the line to a Remark. (Yes, I searched the file for pkg-config.)
     So, what do I do to correct this?
