I should mention that this is the first time I have installed 
openoffice.  I cannot say that openoffice used to work.  This is a fresh 
binary package install of openoffice.

The system was a source upgrade from 6.1-RELEASE to 6.2-RELEASE.

Either or  I don't recall which.

I do have one system with 6.3-RC.  The libstdc++ there is also  I just made the world today on that box.

I don't have gcc3.4 installed as a port.  Here is my system gcc

# gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
Configured with: FreeBSD/i386 system compiler
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.4.6 [FreeBSD] 20060305

I have no idea how my system could be off by one on the major number of 
this library.  I never tinker with that stuff.
