Organization and Macports defaults. If you want to do a dirty  
uninstall it's as simple as rm -rf /Applications/Macports /opt/local.  
You don't have to keep track of much else.  The recommended location  
for apps being installed to /Applications via macports is / 

When building binary packages we can just change ${application_dir}  
in /opt/local/etc/macports/macports.conf to whatever we want before
