Libre Office 6.2.3 packages available

I built and uploaded new packages for LibreOffice 6.2.3. A rebuild for Slackware-current was needed anyway because of the recent boost upgrade in -current, but I assume everyone knows that my boost-compat package will help you with the need for older library versions.

The 6.2.3 release was just over a week ago, but I have not feeling well for a while and things move a lot slower these days. Updates will no longer have the same frequency I am afraid.
Anyway, building on Slackware-current kept failing with gpgme related errors, until I remembered that I had issues with gpgme in the past. The kdepimlibs package in Slackware contains several gpgme++ header files that are also part of the gpgme package, but they are not compatible. Even with the ChangeLog.txt entry Pat wrote on 29 March “kde/kdepimlibs-4.14.10-x86_64-7.txz: Rebuilt. Recompiled to pull in new gpgme++ header files.“, the headers in kdepimlibs are still wrong. A re-install of the gpgme package fixed the compilation of LibreOffice.

Packages are available for Slackware 14.2 and -current from the usual locations. I chose not to upgrade the Slackware 14.2 package to 6.1.5 this time; hopefully the newer code in 6.2.3 is mature enough after three iterations.
