I think the issue is similar to Apache/PHP/CGI ports, and it might have
been discussed before.

Those ports all have compile time options for changing install directory
(lets say zope instance dir).

But they do not have ability to install multiples of the same ports with
different install directories (or instances), which is the root of our problem.

Is it because current ports system, cannot handle this situation well?

Might be worth asking this to ports@
