Make Install Problem

The GNU method of installing programs is ./configure, make , make install. However since i am installing on a restricted system and dont have admin privileges i cant run make install. Is there a quick way to run make install to install to /tmp of ~ instead of the default /usr/bin etc directories
I know i would have to hack the makefiles in order to accomplish this but all the default locations seems to be hard coded in the Makefile. I am tying to install Subversion 1.1.4

any help would be appreciated.

You can run your it from the directory once you have done make, you'll see a binary in there to start whatever it is. Make install just puts it in your $PATH, so you can run it from terminal or other applications can find it when compiling.

You only need "./configure; make" for any compilation. make install only movies the compiled binaries to /sbin or /bin.

You have two options:

1. Put the source code in a directory say /path/to/foobar, do "./configure; make". The executable will be created within /path/to/foobar/sources/". You can simply run the executable from this directory itself.

2. You can configure using "./configure --prefix=/path/to/install" where /path/to/install is accessible to you as a user.

Linux is the kernel. The entire system is called GNU/Linux.
