In XFCE, the menu contains entries for the LibreOffice programs (Writer, Calc 

Expected: Clicking on an entry starts the appropriate program.

Observed: After showing a "LibreOffice" task in the task list for a second or 
so, the task disappears. Nothing else happens.

Interestingly, running "swriter" etc. from a terminal window works.
Short version:

# Install a fresh NetBSD 6.1.3 i386
# pkgin install xfce4
# pkgin install libreoffice4
# Configure X
# startx

My full install script, run after a full install:

pkgin install vim
pkgin install doxygen # Pulls in lots of nice stuff incl. LaTeX :)
pkgin install perl
pkgin install python27
pkgin install py27-imaging
pkgin install git
pkgin install ocaml
pkgin install xfce4
pkgin install abiword
pkgin install gnumeric
pkgin install libreoffice4
pkgin install apache-ant
pkgin install firefox
pkgin install sylpheed
pkgin install evince
pkgin install ImageMagick
pkgin install gambc
pkgin install clisp
pkgin install brasero
pkgin install vlc

echo 'export PATH=${PATH}:/usr/pkg/java/openjdk7/bin' >> ~/.profile
echo 'exec xfce4-session' > ~/.xinitrc

cp /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/famd /etc/rc.d/
cp /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/dbus /etc/rc.d/
cp /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/hal /etc/rc.d/
echo rpcbind=YES >> /etc/rc.conf
echo famd=YES >> /etc/rc.conf
echo dbus=YES >> /etc/rc.conf
echo hal=YES >> /etc/rc.conf

More a workaround than a fix:

ln -s /usr/pkg/lib/ /usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/pkg/usr/bin/libreoffice4.1 /usr/bin/libreoffice4.1

After executing these commands, LibreOffice starts as expected.
