Did you install OpenOffice from a package? comes with  
gcc-3.4+ by default, so why isn't your system finding it...?

Some piece of vital information appears to be missing from your  
problem statement though, like...

1. Did you do an clean install of FreeBSD 6.x or is it an upgrade? If  
an upgrade, from what version are you upgrading?
2. Where did you get the package from?
