Please forgive me if what I'm suggesting is not feasible. That said, it
was my understanding that makefiles include instructions on what and
where libraries should be built. If there were a special Macports
version of git that included a daemon, could it not be used to overrule
the default install directories for any libraries a git project's
makefile may call for?
