Great work! I was able to install your OO 1.1RC4.tbz -CURRENT package on
my -CURRENT from 15/09, and it worked nearly out of the box -- I just had to

$ touch ${OOHOME}/user/config/soffice.cfg

because otherwise every OO app would complain that they weren't able
to open that file, and immediately close again.

One other minor nit is that the wrappers don't allow you to specify files
on the commandline (openoffice-1.1-swriter test.sxw complains about not
being able to read /usr/local/OpenOffice-1.1/test.sxw -- probably a simple
path problem).

Now the only thing is cuckoo [1] making progress so OO can really be integrated
into the KDE desktop :)

Again, thank you to the OO ports team for spending so much time and effort
on OO on FreeBSD!
