Not at the moment.

Hmm, the system python binary is under /usr/local? That doesn't seem right,
/usr/local is supposed to be where things go when a user installs things by
hand. For example none of the software the Fedora distributes put anything in
/usr/local, but by default ./configure && make install for most software roots
things under /usr/local.

If freebsd is really doing that, it would probably require some makefile and
configure tweaking to work on both platforms. Are you just trying to get
virt-manager working personally, or packaging it (whatever that entails) to be
distributed with freebsd?

I'm not entirely sure I follow, but I'd try playing around with --libdir or
--datadir.
