That fixed those missing symbols, but instead the linker reported other missing symbols coming from the dependencies of hfst-ospell (even though it should have been linked statically), the first case was libarchive. Linking with -l didn't work, but explicitly referencing the full pathname did - only to generate new missing symbols from further dependencies. I guess I have to explicitly link all dependencies and their dependencies until all symbols are covered.

Unfortunately these are coming from the LO SDK, and can't easily be changed.

Yes. That is worth considering. I guess that the plugin won't be backwards compatible with LO running under systems older than 10.6 then, right?
