When you get the svn version, create the directory 
"/home/yourhome/local/" then do a ".configure 
--prefix=/home/yourhome/local/" This will then create the make file so 
that when you do a make install your library and headers are stored in 
subdirectories of /home/yourhome/local/
Running against this library is a little more tricky, drop in #sword and 
we can chat about it.
I hope this helps.
In Christ,
