with a little effort googling or digging around in the freebsd.org/ports
section or learning the portupgrade+portdowngrade tools, i am sure that you
will be able to locate the sources. however, i would suggest saving both
yourself and your machine a lot of time and energy.
1) visit and _bookmark_ http://porting.openoffice.org/freebsd/
2) click the link to packages and find the version for you
3) download and place in /usr/ports/packages/All
4) package_add /path/to/file
5) start working with oo.
