This is interesting... Since this works fine on Linux it must be specific to 
the operating system or your configuration. There are some things that come to 
my mind:

- If you have previously disabled the grammar checker with 
ENABLE_GRAMMAR_CHECKER=0 you might have problems with the latest release (it 
cannot be completely disabled anymore).

- There are three OS X specific Makefile changes between 3.4.1 and current

 * 6d986e87eb6aec0874a0d96d808182e29e76d9d8
 * 2cf35173a9af66214983226d1af50967038fe559

Could some of these have caused the problem? Try reverting these (one at a 
time) and see if it helps.

- Make sure you have installed matching versions of LibreOffice and 
LibreOffice SDK when you build the extension. It is not sufficient to upgrade 
or downgrade just the SDK.
