I tried installing Panda3D 1.6.2 to ~/programs/ instead of /Applications/, but when I tried running the sample programs, it would not run. After some tinkering, I’d get it to run iff I copied my Config.prc to /Applications/Panda3D/1.6.2/etc. Without looking at the source, it looks like the config file is hard coded with an absolute path.

On a related note, if a full port was to be made, I suspect the config file would end up as a plist somewhere (/Library? ~/Library?). But again, not a mac dev (yet).
Only things I could find in a quick search are:
