there is an openoffice ebuild on f.g.o  for the testversion of
OpenOffice.org with ooo-build patchset which compiles on amd64.
Even with 64bit sun-jdk-1.5.x but breaks then on registration of
java bits at packaging stage. The tester I got will try with gcj-4
If you build that testversion without java support it merges I guess.
There are still some things to know:
- gcc3 visibility feature is broken on amd64 for OOo2
- OpenOffice.org code is partly five years old ... bla bla bla
- 64bit hacks are planned for OOo 2.0.x
Why I call it 64bit hacks?
That patchset for 64bit support lets OpenOffice.org compile on amd64
but then runtime is still unstable. One thing is to make OpenOffice.org
compile on amd64. The other thing is to make OpenOffice.org runtime
stable. That means some code just does not need fixing but a full
rewrite from scratch until it works nicely on amd64.
If I say something wrong anyone please correct me! Thanks.
