Nope, no /etc/openoffice/, it is completely self contained.  2.0 won't
be out anytime soon.  /opt/OpenOffice-1.1.4/*, and maybe
~/OpenOffice-1.1.4/* should be sufficient for indexing.  Maybe
/opt/openoffice symlink to allow cheating for multiple versions, but
that can wait.  As far as root, the c++ includes symlink, the dir copy,
and program symlinks to /usr.  That's it for root.  I'll bargain for
time and get back into swing for release help shortly.  :-)
