Hi Jeremy,

thanks for the hint. Is it possible to include the pre-pkg phase instructions 
to the pspp port file
that is on macports? Or is there a specific reason why you have a separate port 
file that
you use for creating the package? As you mentioned, the rkward port file on 
includes the pre-pkg phase section.

Would that mean that somebody who builds the dmg from the default macports 
installation would produce an install file that would interfere with a macports 

Is my understanding correct, that the dmg installer will and must install 
everything in 
/opt/pssp (or any other fixed absolute path that is known at compile time)? 

Full relocation which will allow to move the application it to the application 
or any other folder would need more tweaks and possibly changes to 
source, e.g. to find the ui files?
