I installed mine from ports some time ago and didn't have any
difficulties. It took ages to compile however - obviously - so if you
need it right now this might not be an option.
A quick search in ftp's Latest directory does not reveal an openoffice
package, but there is one in the All directory:
You could try the following, as root (assuming tcsh):
pkg_add -r openoffice.org-2.3.1_1
(there are also a 2.4 and a 3.0 version there, have a look at the ftp)
