To be clear, I do not want to install MAcPorts in /usr/local, it is  
fine in /opt/local. But when I build a specific port i want THAT to be  
built and installed into /usr/local/

having everything in /otp/local makes it very annoying to try and  
build things against MacPorts that are not already in MacPorts. For  
example, I notice that slrn that I built did not find the existing  
uudeview install, and everything I try to get slrn's configure to see  
it has failed. If I could simply build uudeview where it is expected  
to be, then I could build slrn with the options I want.
