EDIT 2012-10-22
You can enable Record Macro as follows:

3.5.x
Menu Tools > Options > LibreOffice > General
☑ Enable experimental (unstable) features.

3.6.x (see comments)
Menu Tools > Options > LibreOffice > General
☑ Enable macro recording (limited)

EDIT 2012-11-29

4.0.x (LibO-Dev 4.0.0.0.alpha1)
Menu Tools → Options → LibreOffice → Advanced
Optional (unstable) options
☑ Enable macro recording
(see also → Release Notes 4.0)

Yes, that's pretty hidden: (1) Getting Started with LibreOffice · Chapter 2 · Setting Up LibreOffice, p. 6 → http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/documentation/#gs – – (2) fdo#38509 · Meaningless text and missing Help for Options Dialog checkbox "Experimental (unstable) features"

Note that at least from v. 3.6.2 (what I'm looking at now), this dialog includes an "Enable macro recording (limited)" check box. That makes it a little clearer ... but still not easy to find in the first place!

A fix for fdo#38509 has been applied in fdo#54699.
