Well, because it's not part of the base system on 6.x and the OP does
not have the required gcc variant installed because it was not pulled in
as a dependency of the Ooo package.

Currently USE_GCC only sets a build but not a runtime dependency. Thus
every package of a port that requires a non-default gcc runtime
environment (i.e. libstdc++ and/or libgfortran) lacks this dependency
information and is thus unusable.
