I would be glad to have a way to install, say, apache with a private

You can do that with many (most ?) ports too, just set LOCALBASE
e.g. to /usr/local/apache20 and build all necessary stuff. You want
to use a private package database too, of course.
Is it elegant? Is this way supported by packaging system transparently 
and out-of-the-box? No.
This way of solving problems just increases disorder on HDD, thus 
leading system away from strict and clear FS hieararchy.

So i hope dfly initiative on building brand new packaging system that 
supports concurrent versions of software products without any tweaking, 
will be succeeded. We just all need it.
