Yes.  
It is in the ports.


But, it is easier to install from a package because its build
requires a huge amount of space.  So go to:

            http://projects.imp.ch/openoffice/

Find the appropriate version, download it, put it in /usr/local/openoffice
 (make the dir)  and pkg_add it.

NOTE that the instructions it prints say to run 'openoffice' to start
it up and make it run its config.   But, you really have to run 'soffice'
(with appropriate path spec) to config it and/or start it.
