Steve and list,

I got this solved with the help of another post this morning.  I simply did a:

pkg_add -r openoffic1.1.0_1.tgz

and found the executable from the other post this morning by Jerry.  
OpenOffice seems to work fine now!

Thanks for all the help.  I _am_ still having printing issues, but they're not 
related to openoffice.
