[madras!/usr/ports/editors/openoffice-1.1]$ ident Makefile 
     $FreeBSD: ports/editors/openoffice-1.1/Makefile,v 1.115 2004/02/04 05:25:21 marcus Exp $

In the makefile:
.if !defined(USE_GCC)
    @${ECHO} "You can compile OO with different"
    @${ECHO} "gcc compiler versions:"
    @${ECHO} "Add USE_GCC=2.95 or USE_GCC=3.2"
    @${ECHO} "to compile openoffice with your"
    @${ECHO} "preferred compiler."
