Nope. OpenOffice.org has never compiled or run under 64-bit
architectures because it is seriously not 64-bit clean. That work is
ongoing (part of its here on a hard drive on my desk) and is being
committed to the "cws_src680_ooo64bit02" workspace upstream in OOo CVS.
OOo runs on 64-bit platforms as a 32-bit program.
It will probably be FC6 time before anything useful on the OOo 64-bit
front comes out.
