That's the idea, and in most cases that's true. The ports system just keeps getting better and better. However,there are some ports that are just a pain to build and install. Either they can be tricky to do, they take a really long time, or both. OpenOffice falls in there. I'll avoid building it and use a pre-built package. After you install it, you'll find that it shows up for an update because two lines were swapped in the Makefile. Since I don't care to accidentally be rebuilding openoffice because of this, I have +IGNOREME in /var/db/pkg/en-openoffice.org-US-2.0.3, it doesn't show up as needing an upgrade.
