Cannot open MS Word file with libreoffice-3.3.0_3

I just did a portupgrade to libreoffice-3.3.0_3 (amd64) -- with a 
package created on another machine that I did the portupgrade on before 
and that also had libreoffice-3.3.0_1 installed during make.

In contrast to portrevisions 0 and 1, I cannot open MS Word files 
anymore. I get a window with this message:

General Error.
General input/output error.

In the terminal, I get the message "javaPathHelper: not found", but I do 
get the same opening OpenDocument files, which happen to work fine, and 
I got the same message with the earlier portrevisions that worked.

I know that there are mainly pkg-plist changes since the initial 
portrevision, but the behavior is still different. I also build the the 
earlier portrevisions on the other machine and transferred via package. 
As far as I remember, for portrevision 1 there was also the previous 
version installed during make.
