Additionally, there's also the problem of the various configurational
items for the OpenOffice building process: if to use CUPS or not,
if to include Gnome-VFS support, KDE support, Mozilla support,
and the localized language (which does not even include dictionaries
for that language)...

The times where "pkg_add -r" would give you,
for example, an OpenOffice in german language (WITH dictionaries!)
within a few minutes are over. :-(
