Couldn't possibly comment!
Not sure I can help directly with this one but ......
1. Is your ports tree up to date? And have you run pkgdb -F lately just
to make the database is in good shape? I'm pretty sure that's NOT the
problem here but never does any harm to check :-)
2. There are ways around building openoffice natively. This was a major
step for me as I need the thing occasionally and my hardware is too
antique to build it that way. You can either
A. Install a native FreeBSD binary package - take a look in
I'm told this should run on a -7.0-release system too. But no
B. Install a *Linux* binary and run that through FreeBSD's
compatibility set-up. This is what I am currently doing and it
works perfectly as far as I can tell. Detailed instructions here
One other thought - it helps if you reply _beneath_ the person to whom
you are replying. That way Question and Answer follow in logical order,
which helps if there are several layers of Q and A
