Ok I've gotten ./soffice working. BUT on execution I get a repair error:
"In the StarOffice 5.2 installation, the following file could not be
found!  /usr/local/StarOffice52/user/sofficerc

This file does exist and is in the proper directory. If I the repain
option nothing happens. Why?

when you installed staroffice, one of the last things it did is spat out
the following message:

You will very shortly have finished  a network install of StarOffice
Once that is done exit X11 and run it again as the user that you usually
Then run "make install-user" and do a standard workstation install.
Change the install path to $HOME/office52. Then add $HOME/office52/ to
your path.

after you do this, you will find a program soffice in ~/office52.

cd ~/office52 && ./soffice and you'll be running smoothly.
