Does not work. 'make install' will then look for dependencies
under PREFIX. It won't find the dependencies, and then dutifully
populate PREFIX with those dependencies. I want 'make install' to
install only the files that will be installed from the math/octave42
port. No dependencies. The dependencies are available iin /usr/local.
