In a lots of packages /usr/libexec/ is hardcoded as well as 
library paths (/usr/lib and so on). Thus they're looking for a wrong (on 
amd64) thingies.

Just plain OOo from works here like a charm (no java but
that's the only defficiency if at all). 
Still I tend to agree with you - a native one would be preferable. One way 
to make i386 packages installable & usable seems to put ALL of the i386 
compatibility stuff into some /compat/freebsd32 and make freebsd32-compat 
module look there for a libs (like we do for Linux or SVR4). I WISH I 
could do this myself!
