Not sure if he ever tested his OpenJDK SlackBuild on ARM but you could either wait for him to confirm or try it yourself.
Oh, I can already confirm that I successfully built OpenJDK packages on ARM platform using a slightly modified version of my SlackBuild.
My own ARM port is (not yet) public but MoZes (the armedslack maintainer) is dead set on compiling the same openjdk packages on armedslack - he already has the SlackBuild plus other sources.
You need a java compiler to compile (parts of) LibreOffice. The developers are working hard toward eliminating this requirement, but I do not know the status of LibreOffice 3.5 because so far I was unable to produce a package for that release :-(
Yes, a working JDK is needed in order to compile OpenJDK. This looks like a chicken & egg problem on the ARM platform but in fact there is a way around this. My openjdk.SlackBuild script has a BOOTSTRAP variable which (if set to "YES") allows for the use of GCC's java as the bootstrap JDK. In the bootstrap case, OpenJDK will use a limited subset of Java which GCC's java can fulfill.
