Do you have the exact message?
Btw, if it's just
glibc: 2.2.4 
that's normal and fine. There's a check at the beginning that the glibc
version is new enough, and it always prints the found version number as a
diagnostic message.
There might also be a log file in
/usr/pkg/OpenOffice.org1.1.1/program/setup.log. Does it contain any
interesting lines?

How current is your -current? Looking at commit messages, there have been
some problems during the statvfs->statfs transition, the last fix is from
April 27.

The suse_libc5 issue was that in the days of version 1.0.3 some people
claimed they couldn't install the package unless the suse_libc5 package was
installed as well. I never could reproduce the problem on my computer, nor
to my knowledge has anyone found the cause for this.
