I don't think you will get very far operating on that pkg as all the  
binaries will end up with corrupt install_names. When bootstrapping  
from source, you can of course choose an arbitrary prefix. That being  
said, there should be a way to take advantage of darwins flexible  
dyld and even make the install_names relative to allow for drag-n- 
drop installation of binary pkgs to arbitrary locations(think how  
many cocoa apps are distributed). Haven't figured out the cleanest  
way to do this quite yet, but will most likely involved portage  
looping over the files and making sure all install_names are relative  
before merging to the livefs.
