As a Gentoo user, I did compile OpenOffice 2.3.1 a few days ago. It took 3 hours, 42 minutes on a Core 2 Duo, consumed about 3.5gb of disk space, and failed due to some archaic USE flag set on some obscure depedency.

After consulting the forums, adjusting my make file, and running "emerge -e openoffice", my computer is through 562/824 packages and chugging along nicely.

Mockery aside, I did switch to the binary install of Open Office and firefox about a year ago, as neither would compile without "parential guidance" on x86_64. Atleast not back then.
