I don't see how these two goals are compatible. Any programs installed
for the purpose of a chroot/jail will have to point to $PREFIX, whereas
any programs installed for the purpose of testing it elsewhere will
either have to point to $PREFIX (if the stuff it is pointing to was not
installed by the current package and the "-p" option was invoked), or to
$PKG_PREFIX (if the stuff it is pointing to was installed by the current
package or the "-P" option was invoked).
