Hi. I am not sure the status of it for AMD64, but I do know it requires 
Java. Unfortunately there is no Java for AMD64 yet.

I found this link, but I didn't think Linux binary compatibility was 
possible in the amd64 version. Every time I try to install a port that 
requires Java such as Azureus on my FreeBSD/amd64 machine, it says 
something like "Only for i386, and you are running amd64".

For an alternative, look at AbiWord for word processing and Gnumeric for 
spreadsheets. I'm sure there are others as well.
