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

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
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...
