LibreOffice won't build if roboto fonts installed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the roboto fonts (sudo zypper intall google-roboto-fonts)
2. build libreoffice, error on test tdf#108947, 1 page instead of 2
3. Remove the font (sudo zypper rm google-roboto-fonts) ->It builds

Actual Results:  
Don't build

Expected Results:
Should build

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
I guess that's an issue in the automatic font replacement, the document indicates Tahoma.

I can confirm this problem. While building LOdev (master) on openSuSE Tumbleweed and openSuSE 42.2 (64-bit) the test for tdf@108947 has been failing for at least several months now. Removing the roboto fonts the build of

I can confirm that removing this font fixed the issue. Now when I open
the test file, I see in fact two pages: [2].

Still I am not convinced, that developers/testers have to mess around
with local system for tests to pass. Unless we have a better idea how
to make the test work in both use cases: with and without this font
installed, this test should probably be disabled.
