OpenOffice.org@AMD64: current status

Kendy finished porting bridges to AMD64 and Jens-Heiner Rechtien resynced ooo64bit02 child workspace to the milestone SRC680_m108. Now we are again able to build something that at least starts ;-)

Kendy's patches for ooo-build are here, my patches are here.

We are slowly documenting issues build issues in IZ. Currently, we do build without binfilter (#i33895#), without Java (#i50943#) and without python registration (#i50733#).

There are also other issues. Just search for issues with Summary starting with 64bit:.

Build time on Dual Opteron 242 with 2G RAM is 1 hour, 19 minutes for en-US only build, with -P1 only and hot ccache.

And now: what works? Splash screen works, first time installation can be correctly finished. Help is not available, because we build without Java (but after you copy the contents of help directory from x86 build to the right place, help is working correctly). About window is OK and also Ctrl+S+D+T works there. You can open new documents. In the file dialogs, no filter names are displayed, only file extensions.

My latest build will be in Build-4 directory soon. -----
