	The OpenOffice packages come with dot.desktop files for
	integration with desktop environments like KDE, Gnome, XFCE
	v4.2. Unfortunately, they are not useful as shipped, because

	- both OO versions do not install the files to the canonical
	location {PREFIX}/share/applications.

	- the OO v2 files in {PREFIX}/openoffice.org2.0/share/xdg/
	want to call an "", which is nowhere in

	Banana packages?


	Install OpenOffice pkg, have your users complain about OO not
	being listed in {K, Gnome} menus and other well-known places.

	Install dot.desktop files to {PREFIX}/share/applications/.
	Patch v2 dot.desktop files to exec 'soffice' instead.
	Test package.
	Pull up fix to pkgsrc-2006Q1.
