The freetype dependency has been downgraded so the backport works
properly with the semi-official openoffice.org.  This was discussed in
previous posts.  To fix:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
rm /var/cache/apt/archives/*freetype*
dpkg -r --force-depends libfreetype6 libfreetype6-dev freetype2-demos
apt-get -f install

Now you can 'apt-get upgrade', etc and you can install openoffice.org
