can pkg be used to install in /opt?

Matthew, Mark, thanks for replying.

I ended up editing the Makefile of /usr/ports/math/goblin to set PREFIX
= /opt/local, and installed the port.

Still, it seems to me that the ability to install a package to a
different prefix is, occasionally, useful.
What was the reason for removing it from pkg, when pkg_add had it?
