I upgrade installed packages automatically via Portupgrade every day.

But I don't like to attempt a rebuild of OpenOffice too :D

There is a good idea that doesn't rebuild OpenOffice.

You can do as this:

# mkdir /usr/ports/editors/

# chflags schg /usr/ports/editors/

Portupgrade will skip rebuilding OpenOffice against its will.
