Did that change under pclinuxos or libreoffice, or did you just grab the meta package? Just curious :-)

You're probably right, but the standard tool that pclos uses to
install libreoffice still installs java. It's a one-click installer
function - totally painless.That's no big deal for me, since you get
all the menus updated and the firefox java plugin free gratis, and
that is useful for some websites.
