KDE should compile fine for. I committed all DragonFly BSD specific 
patches to upstream before 3.5.9 release and as result 3.5 branch from 
KDE repo compiles fine without any changes. 

OpenOffice is different beast. AFAIK no work is done to port it to 
DragonFly. I really hope this will change.

Quite depressing I have to say :). But situation should be much better 
already. I had some hours to look at reports during last days and I 
reported most of big problems to pkgsrc developers. Some of them are 
already fixed (MANY thanks to Tobias Nygren).

It demonstrates how important these (hopefully regular) bulk builds are.

These need Fortran.

This needs Obj-C.
