The problem I pointed to is, that at the RELEASE_6_2 two packages of
firefox and openoffice.org exists and via pkg_add -r I receive the older
package of them both, because the links in .../Latest/ are pointing to
the older packages, but the newer packages are available for RELEASE_6_2
(I don't mean RELENG_6)!
Several versions of OOo are available from ports at the
same time. Only one of them has a link in latest. The
others have NO_LATEST_LINK set in their makefiles. You
can contact OOo maintainers (maho primarily) and ask
them to make newer versions available in latest.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
