Isnt't it possible to build LibreOffice --with-lang=ALL?
That might blow up the PBI a bit but it's a kind of giant already.

To follow up on this thread: I spoke to a member of the porting team. The next version of the LibreOffice port will be fully localized. They expected that version of the port to be released by now, but they are hitting a compile bug they haven't solved yet. The JAVA option also needs to be tested.

If anyone is willing to help with the testing and/or figuring out the bug, the Makefiles for the localizations are available at http://redports.org/browser/office. Feedback should be sent to office at freebsd.org. There is also a #freebsd-office channel on IRC efnet (not freenode).
