this sounds like your openoffice package was built on freebsd 4.x. 
on freebsd 5.2 libc_r version is 5 ( you might try to install the 
compat4x package. it's a version 4 compatibility package, which allows you to 
run 4.x binaries on 5.x systems. however, i would prefer to fetch an 
up-to-date package of openoffice or build it from soure.
