	I have never done this, but if I were running a private ports
tree I would be tempted to root it (if not on a separate partition)
at "/usr/priv_ports" or something similar and have the structure
minic /usr/ports whereever possible.  The name would then be
semi-intuitive, and a simple change of a few environment variables
(perhaps in the login file of an account dedicated to working on
those ports) would be all it took to change the framework.
