        Using openoffice2 compiled from source via pkgsrc HEAD, I
        cannot save Powerpoint files.  When I try to save a
        presentation in Powerpoint format, it pops up a box saying
        "Error save the document ...: Write Error.  The file could
        not be written."  There are no other messages, and I can
        save the file in the same directory in .odp format.

        Note that this is amd64-current
        See above
        None known.  However, Nikola Lecic said

                I recall a very similar case with OOo2 on FreeBSD/amd64.
                The problem was a bug in gcc-4.1 used to compile
                it: upgrading gcc (I think to 4.2) and recompiling
                OpenOffice resolved all problems.

        but we don't have gcc 4.2 on NetBSD or in pkgsrc.  (That might mean
        this PR should be in toolchain instead, but I'm reluctant to do
        that without clear evidence of it.  My problem is with Openoffice.)
