Never came across bootstrap in my days, but w/ configure
based installations you can just tell configure to create
the packages target dirs under your home; all you'll need
to have stuff working is to add the relevant ~/bin, ~/lib,
~/doc and so forth to your shell environment, and setting
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point at your local lib...
