I got that too and noticed that, sure enough, there was no such
file as freebsd-local.sh in that directory. So, I CD-d there
and did a 'touch freebsd-local.sh' and it all seems happy now.
Maybe I missed a step that should have put it there, and I have
been negligent in pursuing OpenOffice docs, but it's working so...
There was one more file that it wanted and an empty file seemed to
make it happy, but I can't remember the name right now. After doing
a touch on both of them, things came up and ran fine as far as I can
tell. I am not a very demanding user of those kind of office packages
so I may be eliminating some niceties by cheating like this that I
just haven't notices.
There is probably something in the docs about those files, so, if
all else fails read the instructions...
