I have compiled & installed both on amd64.  The binaries do not
conflict (see below), Both start OK announcing right version numbers.
But I'm not a serious user & no idea if all libs & other includes
etc are carefully segregated.

cat /usr/ports/editors/openoffice.org-3/pkg-plist
	# Dummy file, do not delete. Package list is generated automatically.
So look in makefile, or if you request, I could private mail you my
	/var/db/pkg/ openoffice.org-2.4.2 & openoffice.org-3.0.0
so you could check segregation.

Don't know, have just compiled & installed both, hardly use oo at present,
except to export .doc to .pdf.
