Packages ignoring applications_dir

It forces a build from source if you use a non-standard prefix?  Wouldn't it
be straightforward to just replicate the same files into an alternate
location?  The situation here seems slightly more complex since we're
outside the $prefix/ tree...

Hmm, the build server is probably set to the default for applications_dir
(and frameworks) so all the packages from it are going to respect its

I guess the best option would be to make sure port only builds from source
anytime those are non-default (like it does with prefix).
