Basically i am trying what Ottavio writes...

I have root-access, but want to build several independent pkgsrc trees
on the same system, preferably with standard packages and paths, so i
don't have to recompile everything, but focus on where i want to work

So i guess chroot might support his and i have to look into how to set
it up to support this.
