Not possible

1) Let it install in /opt/sfw
2) move /opt/sfw /to/wherever/you/need/it
3) Create a soft link /opt/sfw pointing /to/wherever/you/need/it

-If you create the /opt/sfw soft link first, the installer deletes it and 
 creates a directory.
-use prodreg to install and/or uninstall

Thanks to:
Doug Otto who mentioned to choose custom install but didn't work
Jed Dobson who recommended to not touch it
Tim Evans who recommended to do a pkgadd -a none but will possibly break
David Foster who recommended to create a soft link before installing
Mike Penny  who recommended to move it after installing or creating a
            prior link
