Thanks for the suggestion. I downloaded the complextoolbarcontrols project, and after having installed boost, it built without issues using the LO 4.2 SDK (the first 64bit SDK for Mac).

The generated oxt was 64bit (I checked with the tool ‘file’, which reports the architecture(s) of binaries), and installed without issues. I had to restart LO to make it work, but after the restart there was no problems. The oxt registered itself as it should, which I confirmed by checking the registrymodifications.xcu file.

I also reinstalled the universal binary LO-voikko, and it still did NOT register.

Before both installations I removed all local LibreOffice 4 settings, to ensure I started from a clean sheet.

Based on the above, it looks like there is an issue in libreoffice-voikko.

I am no C++ programmer, and I am afraid my efforts have to stop now - I really do not know what to do next, and what to look for. More knowledgeable people will certainly do this much, much better and faster than me (if I at all would be able to do it).
