ports capable of coping with --relocate?

for packages I'm using :

* PKG_DBDIR=/$(FOO)/var/db/pkg pkg add --relocate /$(FOO) $(PKGNAME)*

to build up an image in location "$FOO"  that I can tar up and install 
onto a machine.

however some other ports fail to find that a dependency has been 


libglib2 is installed in the manner above, but then 
open-vm-tools-nox11 fails with:

*checking for glib-2.0 >= 2.6.0 (via pkg-config)... no**
**configure: error: glib >= 2.6.0 is required.**

is there  away to make the vmware port look in $FOO, or do I need to 
install libglib into the base system before vmware-tools will find it?
