To follow up Friedrich's comments ...

You should be able to install CKAN at a suburl and I've created a
ticket to this effect: <http://ckan.org/ticket/836>

As I understand it the majority of the sites and links work it is just
that there are some hard-coded links e.g. for this logo -- or are
there other, more fundamental problems (in general a pylons wsgi app
will take account of its url mount point in generating urls ...)
