[Qemu-devel] FreeOsZoo Mac OS X installer woes

I have just switched from Windows to Mac OS X 10.3.8 and thought I might give 
QEMU a try for playing some old DOS games and maybe even attempting a Windows 

I apologise if this topic keeps coming up again and again but I cannot find an 
archive or a search function for this mailing list. On the topic of things that 
may be down to my stupidity, I apologise if I'm doing something blatantly 
obviously wrong. The 'read me' that appears during the Qemu installation 
procedure is not particularly thorough and doesn't answer my questions.

Anyway, I grabbed the QEMU installer from FreeOSZoo and QEmuX, which states 
that all related questions should be posted here. Running the installer has the 
very strange result of placing the qemu binary into /opt/local/bin to which 
only the superuser has access. As I am not willing to log in as root any more 
than absolutely necessary I thought I would ask here - why is qemu installed to 
that location? If I want to uninstall it (to instead install elsewhere), how 
would I achieve that? Is there a way to install to some other location using 
the available installer, or must I build for myself and move things around? Is 
it safe to just move around the already installed files?
