You are jumping the gun, koffice 1.5 is not even in the ports tree
yet.... BUT if you can't wait I've modified the official koffice port
to build koffice 1.5.0. It compiles just fine on my system running
FreeBSD 6.1-RC1 with KDE 3.5.2.

You can get the shar file here:

cd into /usr/ports/editors and run the shar script, then cd into
./koffice-kde3-devel and run make install clean, The build take just
over 3 hours on a Athlon64 3000+.

I've also made it into a FreeBSD 6.x package so you don't have to
waste 3+ hours compiling it. It's built with -march=athlon-mp and
-mtune=athlon64 flags so it will not run on your system unless you
have a athlon-4, athlon-xp, athlon-mp, or athlon64 based processor.
You can download the package here, be nice to my server:
