Oops. Forget the S there at the end. It's ONLY_FOR_ARCHS .

OpenOffice.org 1.1.* depends on gcc 3.2 for building which has no support 
for amd64. Proprietary media codecs work on FreeBSD/i386 because there's 
some hacks to just run the 32 bit code. If you can find 64bit versions of 
those codecs, maybe you can get them working... . nVidia Hardware OpenGL 
does not work because nVidia has only released a driver for FreeBSD/i386.
