I don't know where OpenOffice installs to. > just a tad off topic... whenever you're making those gargantuan ports, it is a good idea to also make a package (for occasions just like this) and keep it around until you update to the next version (and make another package). there is a tiny primer at http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/bsd/2003/08/07/FreeBSD_Basics.html --------- [snip] % cd /usr/ports/www/lynx % make package % cd /usr/ports/mail/getmail % make package When you use make package, two things happen. One, a package is created and stored in a subdirectory of /usr/ports/packages. Second, the port is installed on the local machine, if it hasn't already been installed. If you don't want to keep the application installed on the machine acting as the package repository, simply type make deinstall once the package has been created.
