This one is usually working, except that right now there seems to be a
problem with mozilla (and derivatives). A few posts to working debs have
been posted the last few days.

This one is not yet available AFAICT. From the few messages I read about
this both on this list and the gentoo-amd64 forum it appears to be an
upstream-problem. They have not yet ported it cleanly to amd64 64-bit
That's a version 2 TODO.
IIRC the howto explicitly mentions a workaround for OO.o 1.x using a
32-bit chroot.

No experience with either, but I do remember seeing a lot of kde-packages
when browsing the pool for a kernelimage last weekend.
