When I write the pkg-plist it only looks at the /usr directorys. How can I
get this changed, documentation on this subject is hard to find. And
oppologies if this is the wrong list, perhaps someone can direct me to the
right place :)

You should ask about ports on the <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> mailing list.

Anyway, the directory tree that ports get installed under is known as the $PREFIX, and defaults to /usr/local. A port isn't allowed to change the install prefix (because the user might change it), Someone using this port of yours could do a "make PREFIX=/home/user install" to place it under their homedir, if that's something you want to look into.
