Glad to hear. :)

No PEBKAC, not even an ID-10T issue. I think we simply don't support 
what you are trying to do :-/. We used to have some environment 
variables dealing with this, but as far as I can tell, it's all 
eliminated with code like

   ink_strlcpy(system_root_dir, Layout::get()->prefix, 
   ink_strlcpy(management_directory, Layout::get()->sysconfdir, 

I can't think of any workarounds, other than perhaps setting up 
individual chroot jails for each instance. That at least lets you use 
the some code distributions / packages. Filing a Jira ticket would be 
good, ideally with patches attached ;).
