The problem is not so much installing the PHP code in two different
locations, which you can do quite simply by playing with the PREFIX
settings, but trying to register the same thing two times in the package
Hmmm... The only way I can see to deal with this is to use a separate
package database for the second installation. Something like:
setenv PREFIX /some/where/else
setenv PKG_DBDIR /var/db/pkg-some-where-else
mkdir -p /var/db/pkg-some-where-else
Note: this install will find and use all of the dependencies installed
to support the first instance of phpMyAdmin. If you're doing multiple
installs to support using phpMyAdmin in a jail then there are better
methods. Probably the most conceptually simple method is to null-mount
/usr/ports under your jail directory, then log into the jail and work
inside it. However that does require having a 'fat' jail with a complete
system environment inside it.
This is the functionality that DESTDIR was invented to support
(ie. installing in a location that is different to the way the location
will appear in use) -- unfortunately DESTDIR support is being reworked
and isn't fully available yet.
