Yes, use the instructions on http://be.php.net/manual/en/install.unix.php. When you configure php, use /usr/local as prefix (don't install to /usr, since that can possibly conflict with installed packages).

If you really are compiling manually (not using packages), be very aware of what you are doing. You can easily shoot yourself in the foot.
