Doing a "pkg_create -Rb" yielded the same results as
Patrick's make package. Someone I wound up with 109 tarballs
on ethic [new Dell]. Am trying a pkg_add on tao [old Dell].
See if it works.
...Well, an hour+, but it was a learning experience. In my
desktop's /usr/ports/packages/All---it probably did not
pkg_add -vfF openoffice-3.tbz worked.
PS: I should add in my own defense that I tried building
OOo-311 on my desktop but ran out of diskspace... .
