Well, StarOffice isn't part of pkgsrc, but OO.o is.  I don't know if
the OO.o 2.0 package of Linux binaries has been tested on DragonFly.
But, using pkgsrc, that or a native build of OO.o 1.x is the way to go.

Getting non-statically-linked foriegn binaries to run under emulation
is usually a "fun" task, at least when done manually.
