If LO is the only thing using them, yeah, probably.

But personally, I find the idea of "installing" java libraries under
/usr a bit odd. Java-based apps tend to either bundle all the libraries
they need, or when building from source, download them on-demand from
the Maven repos. The idea of putting them in shared locations is a bit
alien in the Java world...

As such, if I was building LO, I'd just drop the jars into whatever
location the LO build expects, instead of putting them under /usr and
adding symlinks and stuff. I can't imagine much actually uses them
there. But then, LO is a bit weird like that...
