Defaulting --tclpackage to be inside of --prefix

If you don't specify --tclpackage, then it may end up being /Library/Tcl 
or /System/Library/Tcl.

I sometimes do multiple installs of MacPorts on the same box and it 
would be nice to have each MacPorts install keep its files in its own 
prefix.  Also, if you wish to tar up an installed MacPorts, you don't 
also have to find stuff in /Library or /System.

So can we change the default to be something like $prefix/lib/tcl/macports?
