I would suggest running:
./bin/raco pkg config -i --set default-scope installation
Setting the default scope to `installation` will cause commands like `raco pkg install` to install packages in the "pkgs" directory of your self-contained installation, rather than putting packages in a user-specific place by default.
(The more general `--scope` option is tricky to use correctly: I would think of it as a hook for higher-level tools.)
