A problem with the utility /usr/lib/openoffice/sdk/linux/bin/regcomp

Bug Description

Binary package hint: openoffice.org-dev

The SDK package seems to
be 'broken'.Specificaly the utility 'regcomp' is missing. It should be
in /usr/lib/openoffice/sdk/linux/bin .There are scripts there, regcomp,
regcomp.bin and regcomp.bin.bin but the actual exectuable regcomp is
missing, at least I think it is. I tried to build the RNG addin found
at http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/...simpleCalcAddIn under the 'Preparation' section. The error I get is

exec: 146: /usr/lib/openoffice/sdk/linux/bin/regcomp.bin.bin.bin: not found

when i execute the build script.

I have openoffice.org 2.0.4-0ubuntu2 installed.

This won't be fixed for Edgy now, I'm afraid; moving to later for fixing early in Feisty.
