Relocating a package:

pkgadd -R

(man pkgadd)

relocating and symlinking is fine, as long as all the required
and binaries can be found, and you edit the startkde script to see
root path instead of /usr/local. if you relocate /usr/local, you can
the *.la files with sed and replace /usr/local with whatever
the new root path is.

i do not see libart2_lgpl, SDL, the audio libraries or the gtk+/glib
for example. this will cause many endless problems down the road.

using different libraries of a different version built differently
also cause problems.
