The behavior of that button is defined by Apple's Installer framework,
and the only things it can control are the "select volume" dialog and
maybe the install for current/all users (in the rare packages that
support it).  Even if the MacPorts devs chose to support it, it could
not be co-opted to change the install prefix from /opt/local to
something else.
