There is no need for going all the way to cvs and compiling yourself
-- the shell installers will run fine if you run them from your home
directory.  They will ask you where you want to install things, and
you can choose to install them at the current directory.  More than
that -- if you have a bin, include, man etc directories, the
installers will suggest setting up soft links to the relevant places.
