I am currently not aware of any problems with /opt or /opt/local being a symlink
except for the port provides thing. I did test trace mode with a symlinked
prefix to make sure it works and I consider anything that breaks this behavior a
bug I'd be willing to fix.

I even wrote a draft implementation of a fix for port provides, but nobody
picked up on it, finished it and committed it (or provided a commit-ready patch).
If somebody wants to do that, the implementation is somewhere in the -dev mailing
list archives.
