Now I might be missing something here but there are at least two other
choices:

a) as Chris Halls enlighted debian-user earlier today:

edit /etc/openoffice/autoresponse.conf and change
    JavaSupport=preinstalled_or_none
to
    JavaSupport=none
then:
    rm -r .sversionrc .openoffice
    openoffice

b) install OpenOffice with tarball to /usr/local. That will not
require any additional, manual non-deb install of any java-thingy.
