You'll probably find that many ports are not PREFIX-clean.  These bugs
should be reported to the port maintainers, or you can submit a patch
yourself for the unmaintained ones.

Also, you'll need to also set LOCALBASE to the directory where
dependencies have been installed (PREFIX is for where *this* port
should be installed, not where to look for others)
