Unpack it in your home directory, and modify PATH (and perhaps
LD_LIBRARY_PATH) to suit before invoking the build. I did something
similar when I needed to build isdnutils on powerpc (which need gcc-3.0
to build, and gcc-3.0 wasn't installed. Using a different compiler is a
bit more painful then bzip2, as the compiler refers to all sorts of hard
path for preprocessor, libs, includes, ...)
