how to make better use of native tools

I like using macports to get some stuff with lots of dependencies  
installed. I wonder though why it is neccessary for example to  
rebuild native tools such as python and perl. Because it tends to  
cause quite a bit of confusion to have several of those around  
including severel "site" folders created etc.. Now wouldn't it be  
possible to have proxy packages such as fink has? I.e. python24- 
native? It could then be an option. Dunno if macports can handle  
options like that, but it woul shure be nice.
