I don't understand what the problem is that you all are having. Yes I
do, you're not using a procedure that works well.
If you want the latest Openoffice binary package, which is 2.0.2, you
trundle your web browser over to here:
Click on the green box that says: "Get openoffice.org version 2.0.2"
which redirects you to:
http://download.openoffice.org/2.0.2/index.html. When you get to this
page, you click on the box that says: "Download OpenOffice.org" which
gets you to a page where you select your language, OS, and download
site. If you did it correctly, that "download site" clickdown box will
have "FreeBSD page" in it when selected. This will take you to another
page, here you select the "Continue to Download" box which takes you to
the actual site where you get to pick what you want to download.
Maybe you can go straight to it by using this URL:
Once you get there, download the darn thing and install it
using "pkg_add <whatever the name is> or using "pkg_add -v <whatever
the name is>.
Oh, I almost forgot, this is how you get a binary package that was built
for Freebsd 5.5 or 6.1
