rpm2tgz and installpkg

i intended to install openoffice 2.3 in my KDE 3.5 with slackware 12. after i do this
#tar xvfz openofficeblabla

i found out that there is nothing for ./configure and make command. (There is no configure.in file)
then i read in the linux forum, these are the step for installing it

#cd RPMS # i enter this section full with rpm package
#rpm2tgz *.rpm # change all the rpm package into tgz file which is common to slack
#installpkg *.tgz # this command for installing

#cd desktop-integration # this directory contains the package for creating menu in kde
#installpkg openblalafor-slackware

there you go. openoffice is one easy install dude.
