My build of Gentoo was performed by booting with the 1.4beta ISO starting from
stage-x86. If you need any further info, please email me.
The configure script that comes with openoffice uses a too simple script to
check for the gcc version. The script returns all the notices except just the
version. That breaks the lot.
I believe that what needs to be done is to change the call to "gcc --version" to
"gcc -dumpversion". Unfortunately, my attempts to do so have failed for unknown
reasons. I will continue to try.
It appears that the version bump from 1.0.0-r2 to 1.0.1 has resolved this bug.
OpenOffice has compiled for me and at first glance seems to run fine.
