Ahem... Have you noticed that the title says "OpenOffice 3.x or Apache 
OpenOffice 4.0"?

You should not build 4.0. You should retry with the 4.1 instructions:

and you'll find information up to 10.9 and newer there.

The guess is correct. It just misses that we stopped supporting PowerPC 
(and moved to support more modern systems only) a few years ago. It no 
longer applies now.

The link to the "reference environments" that I didn't have handy 
yesterday is this one:
There you'll find (look for the environments.txt and the config.log 
files) that 4.1.2 was built with Mac OS X 10.9.5 and XCode 6.2. Not the 
latest, but not really "legacy" either. I've never used XCode 7 (or any 
version of XCode, for that matter).
