Description Sylvain Demers 2003-11-08 16:55:38 UTC
See the provided URL on 
Basically, the OpenOffice ebuild just needs: 
	append-flags "-fno-strict-aliasing" 
because otherwise it creates an error when importing Excel files. An example 
is provided on OpenOffice's IssueZilla (see URL). 
From said URL: 
"When using -O2 or higher with gcc, OOo must be compiled with 
-fno-strict-aliasing, or you'll get all kinds of problems" 
- the OpenOffice-bin package does not have this problem; 
- OpenOffice-Ximian already has -fno-strict-aliasing (see bug 25241). 

Reproducible: Always

Fixed in -r2, it is a new revision as probably people in other cases will
never find out that a rebuild will fix their excel problems.

oops, it's allready fixed
