Thanks! I was able to find OOo_1.1.3_FreeBSD53Intel_install.tbz and get 
that installed and working.
I still had the bad user interface fonts, but I found that to be a 
problem with my xorg config, and I (mostly) fixed it. I sitll have some 
minor 'ticks' snuggled inside my r's, n's, e's and g characters, but not 
nearly as bad as before. I just started using Xorg over Xfree86 this 
week, and apparantly, font handling, or at least the ports are a little 

Just a couple more questions:
If I keep my ports tree cvsup'd every day, I'm going to have:
openoffice-1.1.3         < needs updating (port has 1.1.3_1)

We generally do a "portupgrade -a" to upgrade ports unless 
/usr/ports/UPDATING affects us. How can I get around the openoffice 
discrepency since a portupgrade -a will always try build it again and 
end up failing?

Also, what are the folks up on doing to get this 
package built that can't be done with the source for 1.1.3_1 on 5.3, why 
can't this port on 5.3, and if it is failing, shouldn't it be marked as 
'broken' on 5.3?

Thanks for any info.
