I'm suggesting something that normalizes everything besides the MacPorts prefix.
That's currently already implied for all other paths, because we don't normalize
(which is exactly why symlinking prefix even works at all), but port provides
breaks in this situation, because it does in fact normalize.

Not sure what you mean with `unreadable pathnames in /opt/local/var/macports/build`
