make install problem

The GNU method of installing programs is ./configure, make , make install. However since i am installing on a restricted system and dont have admin privileges i cant run make install. Is there a quick way to run make install to install to /tmp of ~ instead of the default /usr/bin etc directories
I know i would have to hack the makefiles in order to accomplish this but all the default locations seems to be hard coded in the Makefile. I am tying to install Subversion 1.1.4

any help would be appreciated.
