For these specific cases, I do not think he meant installing anything
that should go system-wide in some user's home directory. Instead, I'm
thinking about setting port's dirs/files into ${PREFIX}/portname/
following a standard UNIX structure as in:
and so on (where PREFIX will likely be /usr/local). All dirs/files
placed outside the above directory scheme will be completely deleted at
In my case, after port's deinstall, there will always be files left in
${PREFIX}/portname/. Is this a reason for tagging the port
