Actually, it's easier than that -- just do a "make package".  If files
go to anyplace else than ${PREFIX}, pkg_create will fail. :)

However, note that you need to move LOCALBASE and X11BASE for *all*
ports, not one.  (For instance, you can't expect an emacs-lisp package
to install correctly if you just try to move it while emacs is still
in /usr/local.)  Set LOCALBASE and X11BASE in /etc/make.conf and
rebuild everything, including X.
