Is it a variable DISTDIR or PACKAGES?

If you write the following in /etc/make.conf, you can use a different location only for certain port.

.if !empty(.CURDIR:tA:M/home/you/DEV/<category>/port-im-developing)
DISTDIR= /home/you/dir_for_src
PACKAGES= /home/you/dir_for_put_pkg
WRKDIRPREFIX= /tmp/wrkdir
