You might consider doing your builds and testing on another machine  
entirely, to avoid disrupting a system which is in use.

Another option to consider is using a chroot'ed environment or jail  
using $DESTDIR (cf /usr/ports/Mk/  Finally, if neither  
of the previous seems to suit, then you can change where ports are  
installed by adjusting $LOCALBASE.
