Then run make manually. You can do this all as a normal user. Depending on what you are building, you may be able to run it as a normal user from the build directory. If not, you are probably going to override the make file so it installs relative to your home directory. Once you have it debugged, you can transfere the changes to the virgin source with a patch, or pass them upstream...
