[SunHELP] Fighting with OpenOffice

Hi Gang:

Other than the OS, I haven't installed much with packages.  Some 
exceptions are Firefox, Thunderbird and OpenOffice.  Firefox and
Thunderbird force you to pkgrm them before a new pkgadd.  Is
there some way that you can do both at the same time?  In any case, 
OpenOffice doesn't require this.  I thought that this was because it
was just being nice and taking care of that.  However, after realizing 
that I had a mixed-up installation of 2.2 combined with 2.3, that's not 
the case.  So, I guess, I have the same question again.  Is there an 
easy way to upgrade a package without having to manually remove it 
first?  For OpenOffice this is really a pain since there are currently 
29 packages that you have to name to remove.
