It's certainly not forbidden ;-)! All I'd be concerned about is that you'll end up with unrunnable applications due to the hardcoding of paths to scripts in the applications, and thus inherit a big support burden as the maintainer of the port. There are ways around this hardcoding, but this is low on our priority list at the moment.
