That gets it installed, but it doesn't work yet.

cbbrowne@knuth:~> ooffice

OpenOffice.org for Debian - see /usr/share/doc/openoffice.org/README.Debian.gz
running openoffice.org setup...
/usr/lib/openoffice/program/setup.bin: error while loading shared
libraries: libz.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
setup failed (code 0).. abort
---- Please read /usr/share/doc/openoffice.org/README.Debian.gz for
known problems -----

Nothing relevant seems to appear in the README.Debian file.  When I
run ldd on the setup program, I get an interesting set of missing

cbbrowne@knuth:~> ldd /usr/lib/openoffice/program/setup.bin           
                                           Sunday 20:05:16
        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0x00000000)
        libsb645li.so => not found
        libsvt645li.so => not found
        libvcl645li.so => not found
... and numerous others ...

Adding /usr/lib/openoffice/program to /etc/ld.so.conf fixes lots of
this, but still leaves it unable to find libz.so.1, which I know is
available is /usr/lib/libz.so.1.2.2...
