It won't build for me. The problem must be related to my build environment, 
but I can't figure it out.I am trying to keep area51 ports in a separate 
PREFIX, to avoid contamination on my working system. So I am using 
a /workspace/area1 directory. (The area51 ports tree is also separate from my 
main ports tree). Here is my environment:

export AREA51=/workspace/area51
export PREFIX=$AREA51
export PORTSDIR=$AREA51/area51
export PATH=$AREA51/bin:$PATH
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/workspace/area51/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH

Strigiapplet will not build, with an error that it can't find strigi (which is 
correctly installed). I have tracked the problem down to CMAKE_INSTALL_PATH. 
This is set in the Makefile with:

                -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=${PREFIX} \

But the ${PREFIX} is getting replaced with "/usr/local". When building, 
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX is set to /usr/local. But echoing ${PREFIX} shows the 
correct /workspace/area51. This has me stumped. I strongly suspect this 
problem will arise on all other cmake ports with dependencies outside 
of /usr/local. Does anyone have any clues?
