I have tried the Package relocation and want to give you some feedback.
-with the entries in startkde and changing the fam entry in 
/etc/inetd.conf it works
-I had to link ln -s /opt/local-3.1.3/usr/local/share/ghostscript 
in order to make gs work
Therefore I don't know, if there are more applications with hardcoded 
path to /usr/local

But apart from this, it works great.
Even Fast on a Ultra 10
