Now that you got it installed, you may use pkg_create:
pkg_create -Rb openoffice.org-3.1.1
(You can get the exact package name using pkg_info -Ix openoffice)
The -R flag will also build all dependencies of openoffice.
Something along the lines of the following script:
#! /usr/bin/env bash
mkdir -p /usr/ports/packages
rm -rf *.tbz
echo "Package creation starting `date`"
for i in `pkg_info -Ea`
echo "Creating $i"
pkg_create -b $i
echo "Finished, `date`"
will create a package for every single port installed on your system and
place it in /usr/ports/packages. You can then move these and install
them on another system. Notice the script does not use -R as it is
already building all packages :)
