OpenOffice.org-2.3.1-r1 requires a version of dev-libs/icu that has setBreakType as a public method. Emerging icu with ~amd64 keyword solves this problem, but the ebuild for OO.o should require the correct version of icu. See the URL for the forum post about this issue.
Steps to Reproduce:
Attempt to compile openoffice with amd64 keywords.
Build fails during configure.

I've raised the dependency in the ebuild, thanks for reporting.
Note: But allowing icu larger than 3.6 disables the emerging of grass depending on gdal depending on xerces-c-2.8.0 depending on icu-3.6-r2. Don't masking >=dev-libs/icu-3.8.1 gives:
root@fox:/root(20)# emerge -pvutD --newuse world
These are the packages that would be merged, in reverse order:

('installed', '/', 'dev-libs/icu-3.8.1-r1', 'nomerge') pulled in by
('ebuild', '/', 'app-office/openoffice-2.3.1-r1', 'merge')
('ebuild', '/', 'dev-libs/icu-3.6-r2', 'merge') pulled in by
('ebuild', '/', 'dev-libs/xerces-c-2.8.0', 'merge')
('ebuild', '/', 'dev-libs/boost-1.34.1-r2', 'merge')
I found as a workaround to remove the icu USE flag from xerces-c.
