Download it to your home directory (or a subdir), untar and build it as
yourself (not root!), and su -c "make install".
For more complicated programs, I like to use
--prefix=/usr/local/$pkgname/$pkgversion so all of its files are easily
contained. Then I create that directory, chown it to me, run 'make
install' as me, and chown it all to root afterwards.
