Ok... but this is actually not what I wanted...
I want to install to root, and at installtime prepend the custom
rootpath to the files... This because I want to use it to install
to a ${D}rootpath, for gentoo. This means installing files to normal
root, but tracking all installed files, so I can use gentoo's
uninstaller afterwords. This is the default way to do this in
