I did it, and it wasn't hard, just confusing. It is confusing because 
you need to know that:

1. You need the linprocfs mounted to make java/linux-sun-jdk14
2. You need to install java/jdk14 before you try to build OpenOffice 
(even though this is not listed as a dependency).

Note: this is from my memory, which is not always 100% what it should be.
