Thanks for your info. I tried the installation and all went very well.
At least so it seemed..
Running the officesetup I got errors like "ELF binary type "0" not
known" I started the program under a /compat/linux/sh shell and still
got this message. I branded the binaries.. no luck. I started them
normally (under fbsd) and nothing happened at all. So, I guess the
package won't run under fbsd.
