Description freebsd 2012-11-17 20:00:00 UTC
upgrading editors/openoffice-3 using
  portmaster editors/openoffice-3
leaves the symlink in /usr/local/bin pointing to the old version:

  lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  16 May 27 20:37 /usr/local/bin/openoffice -> openoffice-3.4.0
  -r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  378 Nov 17 01:17 /usr/local/bin/openoffice-3.4.1

Fix: 

manually delete the link and remake it:
  cd /usr/local/bin
  rm openoffice
  ln -s openoffice-3.4.1 openoffice
How-To-Repeat: install a 3.4.0 version and do an upgrade

openoffice-3 is not available anymore. 
All efforts are focused on openoffice-4 now. 
New OpenOffice ports support staging so broken packages should 
be much easier to detect.
