You're mudding up things.  You want to set LOCALBASE to /usr/foo and
ports should be "PREFIX" clean as that is what is passed to them.
LOCALBASE is used as the default value for PREFIX _AND_ the location for
dependencies.  Thus when testing a port that depends on tk, I can do

    make PREFIX=/tmp/foo package

And not have to install Tcl/Tk in /tmp/foo also.  Thus it is easier to
auto-generate PLISTs.

If all ports are PREFIX clean, you will have that.  Thus it doens't need
to be discussed separately.
