You are of course right about not installing anything into $HOME. I changed the port to install into /Library/Application Support/MacPass and also changed the „parent“ app MacPass to load plugins from this location.

If I were a seasoned Objective-C developer I would have changed the path to something below ${prefix}. If I find time to dig deeper into Objective-C I will do that, but for the time being I think /Library/Application Support is good enough.

The PR for the new port MacPassHTTP is here:
