# portmaster -a -x libreoffice

does the trick :)  Thanks very much.  I ran the man portmaster and
could not find the right switch :(  It has many options.  This is why
I asked to be sure.

Thanks to all for replying.  It makes things easier when there are
nice folks that can provide help when one asks for it.
