Having received no response to an ealier inquiry on an error in building 
openoffice2 (due to a large number of symbols not being available because they 
were in a 'discarded' section), I thought maybe it would work better if I used 
the gcc-4.1.3 which comes with netbsd-current rather than the gcc-3.4.6 in 
pkgsrc.  So I commented out the relevant lines from the Makefile.NetBSD.x86_64 
and sure enough I ran into the same "bug" that is noted in that Makefile:

# Is /usr/lib/libsupc++.a broken (-current and 4.0_BETA2) ?
#  /usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/libsupc++.a(pure.o): relocation R_X86_64_32 can not be
#  used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
#  /usr/lib/libsupc++.a: could not read symbols: Bad value

Is there any way around this?  I'd really like to get OO working on this amd64
