libreoffice dialog when exporting an ODG to EPS.

I recently upgraded libreoffice to 4.1. I remember that exporting an ODG to EPS was no problem (I think imagemagick's convert was used then). However, that does not work. I get 'Graphics filter not found', however I don't know how to fix it. I can't find any use flags or libreoffice extensions. Any idea ?

I see this too. But (even worse?), it also can't import eps, same error message.

There is an upstream bug:
that makes this sound like a packaging problem.

Apparently the Ubuntu PPA version has the same problem and Suse as well:

Libreoffice still doesn't work (btw, thanks for reporting upstream, Carl).

After rebuilding LO a few times, I've found that removing --enable-mergelibs from the configure command makes this problem go away.

I will report it upstream, but is there a good reason not to remove this option from the ebuild?

This will be fixed in next release. Yay :-)
