Those probably won't cause problems for MacPorts.

More precisely, with System Integrity Protection turned off, I moved /usr/local elsewhere (not in /usr, which is mostly protected), and replaced it with a symlink to the new location. That way, I can rename what the symlink points to, without necessarily needing to leave SIP turned off.
Grumble... I didn't realize SIP would prevent renaming /usr/local. That's inconvenient.
