I use an external PDF writer for some documents where LO fails to
convert vector formats correctly.
That said, if I use the external converter I loose all my cross
referencing and TOC links that LO does very well in my opinion.

I have used export to pdf in LO Writer and always had a good pdf copy
but the TOC links never work in the pdf version.  I've tried the
different options under the links tab in the export to pdf dialogue but
can't find any difference whatever the options selected.

I'm using LO as supplied by UbuntuStudio 1404.  For reading the
pdf's, I use Okular.

Does the use/performance of TOC links in the pdf depend on the reader ?

Quite possibly, since the reader has to interpret the links, and perform the action of moving to the appropriate page when you click on them.

Having said that, I just looked at a PDF I exported from LibreOffice 4.4 (rather an old version) a couple of weeks ago, and the TOC links do not work in Adobe Reader X. Exporting the file to PDF again, the links DO work. It seems that if I open the file in read-only mode (I'd set the read-only file property on the file) and export as PDF, the links DO work, but if I click the banner to "Edit Document" and export to PDF from edit mode, the links DON'T work. Possibly related to:

All the PDF export settings were the same in both cases:
- General
  - Range: All
  - Images: JPEG, 90%
  - Archive PDF/A-1a
  - Export bookmarks
- Initial View
  - Panes: Page only
  - Magnification: Default
  - Page Layout: Default
- User Interface
  - Display document title
  - Bookmarks: All bookmark levels
- Links
  - (Nothing selected; ticking all options made no difference)
Other options I haven't mentioned were not ticked
