I have done this, or at least something similar ...
installed all to the "normal" place, tar'ed it in, removed it, extracted
it to it's special place and symlinked it to it's "normal" place.
This is NOT a productive solution, because some packages tend to resolve
the "physical" pathname to include extensions, so the extensiones will
not install to the "normal" place, but to the "physical" place. This has
created some bad hickups ... (for me)
