Howto for non-standard paths???

I like the idea of LFS/BLFS, but the package management problem seems too
significant... I remember reading a hint that described different
strategies for package management.
I would like to try the "dumb" method of installing each package to a
separate directory... I'm thinking this may not be to bad since a whole
list of directories can be given to /etc/ld.conf and they will be stored
in a hashtable.. At the least, I'm under the impression that most packages
might be flexible enough configure scripts for this...
On the other hand, I'm considering installing each package to a separate
directory and upon each installation/removal, re-populating a fake set of
standard "/usr" directories with symbolic links to the real files...
Does anyone here have any experiences with either of these methods? In
doing the first manually, I had some difficulty getting binutils, glibc,
and gcc to work together when each were in separate directories...
