I have found NO_MTREE and defined it, so only directorys in which
the port copies files are left after deinstallation. Can I put
this directorys in pkg-plist to leave a clean system after
deinstalltion? No other port uses $LOCALBASE/pilot as prefix (at
least at the moment).

I have tryed to understand why the port use a own PREFIX, but my
programmer skils are not the best and I think it is because the
port installs a own version of gcc/binutils to cross-compile for
the Palm arch. Perhaps I understand this in some months ... but
for the moment I will leave the PREFIX.
