Brew

Requesting an update of build instructions to show building with Homebrew

building with homebrew of any other such system is highly discouraged, and completely unnecessary Shmget (talk) 2015-02-13T20:31:54 (UTC)

Correction: I meant installing the dependencies via HomebrewFulldecent (talk) 2015-02-14T05:30:08 (UTC)

I believe this does it: brew install autoconf automake ant junit

Actually better would be a Vagrant build. I am running these commands and cannot reproducibly build libreoffice-4.3.5.2 from git. It would be wonderful if I could actually build this project. And I do not like the approach of: RTFM, get error, Google error, repeat. It should be: Vagrant up, run script. If script doesn't work, report bug.
