Is it possible to install MacPorts as a non-superuser? I install applications to ~/Applications/ and they run fine. I'd like to install an instance of MacPorts to ~/opt/local/, and have everything that I run under this account link to that instance. Is this possible?

The Macports website documents this procedure in their installation guide: https://trac.macports.org/wiki/InstallingMacPorts
