So I finally built my Slackware packages for LibreOffice 3.3.1. It took way too long, but I hope you like the result. A lot of additional language packs are available this time.
One thing I had overlooked was that the new LibreOffice branded icons were not installed by default, so my package is still using the old OpenOffice.org branded icons. Next time, the old icons will have been replaced with appropriate new icons, I promise! Thanks to David for noticing and reporting that omission.

For completeness’ sake: my own packages are built from source, on a Slackware computer. There is another way to get LibreOffice installed and that is to take the official pre-compiled binaries (unfortunately only available as RPM packages) and use the SlackBuild script at http://slackbuilds.org/ to extract the goodies from these RPMs and create useful Slackware packages out of them. Which of the packages you use is a matter of preference. The RPMs are not built on a Slackware box but they are guaranteed to work… probably on older versions than Slackware 13.1 too.
