Some packages aren't well configured so that some paths are fix and
package users prevent overwriting based on the permissions so that I
get errors at installation and can manually edit the Makefile to
customize the paths.

First I startet with package users, then I installed my system in the
lfs-next-to-existing-system-way, then I got the idea of installing all
in /pkgs and now I have a mix of all the three.

hm, I will review it later.
