OOo works just fine for me.  I don't have jdk14 installed, though I did 
when I installed OOo.  You're other options are to try WITHOUT_JAVA, 
change the makefile to point to 1.4+ and see what happens, or install 
the packaged version.  Also you could try freebsd-openoffice@ and/or 
freebsd-java@ since freebsd-questions@ isn't turning up any similar reports.
