When I first built libreoffice [ 188.8.131.52 ] it installed Liberation
fonts and used that as the default (I know Armin has a Times font as
his default, so the default is apparently not set in stone). For
all my subsequent builds I decided to install the font along with my
regular fonts and have had no problems - my most recent builds were
184.108.40.206 using '--without-fonts'.
https://fedorahosted.org/liberation-fonts/ will take you to the
page for these fonts - you want liberation-fonts-ttf-2.00.1.tar.gz

Ah, you too have read
For me, installing all the ttf files from Liberation into a
directory under /usr/share/fonts, followed by running fc-cache,
makes the fonts available everywhere.
Unfortunately, the LO build system has changed, but most wiki docs
have not caught up with LO-4. Because it takes so long to build, I
suggest you install the font(s) [ there are mono, sans, serif
variants ] and then rerunning 'make'.
