I think you will step into dark and unkown territory (anyone who has
succeeded using i386 OO on amd64, please correct me).

Yesterday I compiled openoffice.org-2.0.3 on my amd64 box
(compilation time 410 min) without any problems. So I think you should
first be more tenacious about getting the OO-amd64 to compile before
trying the i386 version.

Btw if you want I can send you the amd64 package
openoffice.org-2.0.3.tbz (110M).

Good luck!

Testing can show the presence of bugs, but not their absence.
