Well, I went through the prescribed steps without success and so then I tried the less prescibed steps (following the example shell commands for isolating errors-see last panel of Install Complete), still no success.
The steps I followed and results:
[localhost:~/Applications] david% cd /Applications/OpenOffice.org1.0.1/program
[localhost:/Applications/OpenOffice.org1.0.1/program] david% sh soffice
salogl.cxx/GetOGLFnc(): Could not load symbol glFlush
dyld: /Applications/OpenOffice.org1.0.1/program/soffice.bin Undefined symbols:
OpenGL undefined reference to _gll_noop expected to be defined in /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.dylib
OpenGL undefined reference to _gll_pkey expected to be defined in /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.dylib
I also vi'ed the InstallLog, and everything installed correctly, so for some reason I'm getting, what appear to me a true novice, problems using or implementing the OpenGL aspects required for running OOo.
Thank you all in advance for your help,
