Fetching tarball before the build

Warning: WP_Syntax::substituteToken(): Argument #1 ($match) must be passed by reference, value given in /homepages/7/d105059906/htdocs/wp.kohei.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-syntax/wp-syntax.php on line 383

I just rebased one of my upstream child work spaces to milestone 77 (DEV300_m77), and noticed my build breaking all over the place due to missing patches for external libraries. After some digging, here is the step I was missing.

./fetch_tarballs.sh ooo.lst

which apparently downloads a whole bunch of external source packages from http://hg.services.openoffice.org/binaries that the build depends on, and places them into their respective location within the source tree. After this was done, my build proceeded normally.
