Not at all. You just need to tell ./configure that you plan to install
stuff in your home directory, not in a global system directory.

   ./configure --prefix=/home/username

The is the way almost all "./configure; make" software works. I get the
impression that you don't have much experience building software. :-)
You might want to consider grabbing some precompiled binaries for your
system -- perhaps someone can even give you a statically linked client
binary, since that's all you need.
