OpenOffice installation: "cannot find shared libraries:"

Whether I go the Slackbuilds way or the built-in, extracted tar.gz setup way it gives me this error, and upon looking in /usr/lib (where I'm assuming it would be located) it does not appear that I have it. Must I install it manually? If so, where can I get it? Or, is something wrong on a larger scale?
I'm not a new Linux user, but I am new to Slackware (and running 32-bit, since I left that out earlier). I thought Wine was going to be the most daunting to install but I guess not!

Well that would explain it; I got rid of any seamonkey package on my system. Thanks!

and seamonkey-solibs is now rebuilt to include this library, so you would need to update to the latest version on patches directory


32bit,, slackware
