OK, I didn't realise that writer2latex had non-OOo components, but
that makes sense.

Thanks for the suggestions.   Is the "net.sourceforge.ooolatex"
something you derived from the webpage, or is that somehow also in the
.oxt?

Also, in this case it appears that upstream insists on including some
binaries in the .oxt file (they don't seem to distribute a true
OS-independent source tarball)

so, for example, if you run:

unzip -l  OOoLatex-4.0.0-beta-2-linux.oxt

then you get:

I assume the thing to do in the case is simply remove the files in
bin/ and lib/ after installing them in the %install section as you
describe above is the best way to deal with those?  (libEMF is already
in Fedora, and I'd need to package latex2emf separately).
