The profile file "/etc/profile.d/libreoffice-common.csh" assumes that PYTHONPATH is already defined, and tcsh breaks when encountering an undefined variable.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
libreoffice-common: 3.5.2-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
Run tcsh without PYTHONPATH being set anywhere.

To resolve:
Wrap the line with an if-check like the following:

if ( $?PYTHONPATH ) then
setenv PYTHONPATH ${PYTHONPATH}:/usr/lib/libreoffice/program
setenv PYTHONPATH /usr/lib/libreoffice/program

Actually even for SH it doesn't look good supposing the variable exists and is defined... I changed both source scripts in my box to:

% cat /etc/profile.d/
if [ "$PYTHONPATH" != "" ]
export PYTHONPATH="$PYTHONPATH:/usr/lib/libreoffice/program"
export PYTHONPATH="/usr/lib/libreoffice/program"

% cat /etc/profile.d/libreoffice-common.csh
if (${?PYTHONPATH}) then
setenv PYTHONPATH ${PYTHONPATH}:/usr/lib/libreoffice/program
setenv PYTHONPATH /usr/lib/libreoffice/program

For now I've reverted the change until we have a proper solution.
