Libpaper is now used by cups and ghostscript.

Libvisio is now used by Calligra and system libvisio will soon replace
the internal libvisio in LibO.

Libetonyek and libodfgen are used in LibO and will be used in Calligra
2.8.x. - so packaging these libs also makes sense.

Boost is only a makedep in LibO and not linked. Build was very often
broken when we had updated our system boost. As it has no benefit at
runtime I stay with the well tested internal boost in LibO.

For rhino LibO uses a patched source. I doubt we can use our rhino pkg.
