Building and running new package versions not yet in pkgsrc?
What do I do if I want to build and run a package where pkgsrc version is not
up-to-date, and I want to build and run the current release version of that
package, like Abiword 2.8.6 for instance, when pkgsrc version is far behind?
Or maybe I want to try a new alpha or beta development release of a package
like Firefox or Seamonkey, but don't want to burn my bridges on the already
installed and running version.
Can I create a testing install base such as /extra or /usr/extra, and set
and perhaps modify some other environment variables, and then be able to return
to the regular environment? I would only want to change a few things
temporarily and would not want to create an entire chroot system.
