MacPorts without root privileges: how?

OK, I installed dbus using +no_startupitem+no_root. Thank you all for
the pointers to these variants.
No such luck, however, with the postgresql90-server port. This port
is basically uninstallable without root privileges. This is highly
annoying to someone who has done dozens of PostgreSQL server
installations before. I'm sure I can finish this one by hand. What I
can't figure out is how to tell MacPorts that this port should be
considered installed and active.
So I return to the question: how to finalize the installation and
activation of a port "by hand"? What must I do to mark a port as
installed and active? What tricks/tools can I use to determine what's
left to be done?
Thanks in advance,
