How to Reinstall OpenOffice from Ports

I just attempted to install OpenOffice -1.0.2_2 suite using the FreeBSD 
(4.7 RELEASE) ports tool.
After successfully completing the make install process, I started the 
setup script, ./setup, instead of ./setup -net by mistake .  I stopped 
the process and started again using the /setup -net script.

 I inadvertently started the deinstall process and had to start again. 
 This time I realized that I had lost the setup scripts and apparently 
some other important config files as well.

I thought that I could make things whole again by running another make 
install but nothing happended.  Am I wrong in this assumption?  Is there 
a step I missed in trying to run make install?
