Maho has been working on gcj support for a while. Two weeks ago, he 
reported that he got OOo to compile, but it would crash in Java code.

So, for now, gcj is still a no-go. It's marked as broken in 
editors/openoffice.org-2.0's makefile, lines 82 to 84:

.if defined(WITH_GNUGCJ)
#BUILD_DEPENDS+=        ${LOCALBASE}/bin/gcc41:${PORTSDIR}/lang/gcc41-wgcj
BROKEN= "still work in progress"
