Hi Bryan,

Are you using source or binary distribution?

If source, try using configure with
--prefix=/some/dir/you/have/write/access or the equivalent

If binary, just unzipping the file to a local dir would be enough, if you
call the binary with full path. Otherwise, put the bin directory in your
path, and it should just work.
