Whether OOo requires gcc-4.3 indeed?  Not "customized" version of
gcc-3.4 (ooo-gcc if I recall correctly...)?

About another ports: the was majority of prorts doen't require any
specific GCC version supplied in ports, but use system-default gcc
instead (/usr/bin/gcc), therefore, order of building gcc-4.3 from
ports is irrelevant.
