"ooffice"/"oowriter" etc are artifacts of the "ooo-build" build wrapper
around stock OOo, and don't exist in the stock generic build. Instead
the launchers are just e.g. /opt/openoffice.org2/program/swriter etc.
ooo-build is used by novell/debian/fedora <=3 and probably most other
distributions. For compatibility fedora >=4, while attempting to use a
closer-to-stock build, also has "ooffice"/"oowriter" etc launchers. They
consist of simply
exec /usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice "$@"
