Unfortunately, the problem is rather difficult to fix. buildapplet (or
py2app, or similar tools) will need to be told that we're in a destroot
install situation, so that if it wants filenames it should use the
non-destrooted version but if it actually needs the data that's in the
files it should use the destrooted filename.
I can live with the current workaround for MacPython installers, if
it's a problem for darwinports file a bugreport and a solution may be
