     122<p><strong>Why does darwinports install everything into /opt/local by default?</strong></p>
     123
     124<p>First, this location can be set to anything you like by editing
     125/etc/ports/ports.conf so nothing is fixed in place.  Even the basic
     126darwinports infrastructure, which installs into /opt/local by default,
     127can be installed elsewhere by overriding the value of PREFIX on the
     128command line (see the README file for details).  Second, we had to
     129pick SOME location for things to install into so that they would not
     130collide with system components or things already installed in /usr/local,
     131so we elected to loosely follow Sun's convention and go with /opt/local.</p>
     132
    122133<p><strong>OK, so how do I start playing with it then?</strong></p>
