Did the compiler segfault? If it did then it sounds more like a
toolchain/kernel problem than an openoffice problem.

You shouldn't have to do anything special, but openoffice is a bit of a
bitch to compile (mostly due to the amount of time it takes though). The
openoffice-bin package is a bit old on ppc, it's based on an RPM. You
can (usually) grab a binary package of openoffice (built on Gentoo) from
my dev page, http://dev.gentoo.org/~dholm/ppc.html
Did you solve your DMA issues?
