We need to be careful.  This is actually a very popular page with many
3rd party websites linking to it and around 4000 visits/day.  It is
also the top link for Google queries like "openoffice for mac".

So I'd recommend either keeping the page and updating it.  Or
replacing it with a page that says that the Mac port is now full
integrated with our releases and then link to the download page.  Or
put in a 401 redirect from that URL to the download page.  But it is
well-trafficked enough that we can't have the URL vanish.
