Definitely. However, if it was that trivial, I would have done it a long
time ago. ;-)
I've still got some problems left, that make OOo 1.0 crash regularly after a
few minutes. I'm trying several options (including gcc-3.1 which is what is
used for Linux and FreeBSD) but it is very time consuming.

Maybe a package using the linux binary under emulation would be an easier
way for the moment. Does anyone want to give it a try?
