The best way is just to stick the cd in the drive, mount it and let the
port take care of the rest. ie:

# mount /cdrom
# cd /usr/ports/editors/staroffice5
# make install USE_CDROM=yes

If you don't have an up-to-date copy of the port (mine appears to be
$FreeBSD: ports/editors/staroffice5/Makefile,v 1.10 ...$), then download
a copy of the port from, or (better) set up cvsup
to keep things up to date automatically.  For that latter option,ve a
look in /usr/share/examples/cvsup.
