OO creates files in the $HOME and other directories that are not
automatically removed by "pkg_delete". Use "pkg_delete" with the "-dfv"
option to delete as much as possible. Then move or delete the other OO
files/directories. You will probably have to search for them.

Finally, update your ports tree and try reinstalling OO again. If you
have "portmanager" installed, you could try this:

	portmanager editors/ -l -y -p

Good Luck!
