As this option is only available in trunk, all current ports have 
"/Applications/MacPorts" and the framework path hardcoded. As of the 
next release ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} can be used in 
Portfiles instead. Until then, there is no easy solution to keep 
multiple MacPorts installations.
