thank you for your reply. your suggestion seems to work, or at least has
not produced an error, yet. :c)
i thought i *had* tried the .org bit on the end at one point, but
apparently that was another version of me, in another universe.
it's still fetching it, as we speak... (tip-toeing around) i installed
the port a few weeks ago on a different install, and it required 9gb.
is there a way to find out how much space the package needs / uses? i
got the impression that the package route for large-ish installs such as
openoffice used less, but i've definitely been wrong before.
