After spent many days of struggling, finally I built libreoffcie- on
Arch linux.

I run the command line on new built software: soffice --headless
--convert-to pdf my.docx
(here my.docx is a regular English document with size 19K)

my.pdf has been created successfully. but the display in Adobe Reader looks
strange: The structure of pdf resembles original docx format. but all
characters in pdf are display as [], in Adobe Reader.

I did the compare with the libreoffice installed on Mac. Here is the

                                                    Original file size
(.docx)        size of pdf after convert (.pdf)
using software built on linux box:       19K                                         
using software installed on Mac:         19K                                         

You see that the size after converting using new built was much smaller that
the one built from installed software.
I used online tool to extract txt from pdf. it consists of only data

Any idea how this happened or how to debug the issue?

I attached the configuration flags I used to build libreoffice:
                --with-build-version="${_LOver} Arch Linux build-${pkgrel}"
--with-vendor="Arch Linux"

Thanks ahead for any help
