Check the version of Open Office you are using. 3.0 got rid of the X11 requirement. It only runs on Intel systems though.

If you're working on a PPC, you may want to try using NeoOffice. Its based on the same source code as OpenOffice but runs natively in OS X using Aqua.

As always, make sure to back up important data and test out the new software before deleting anything.
