Assuming I am an unprivliged user how would I go about 'make && make
install' to install software from the pkgsrc collection? 

I saw a snippet in the FreeBSD Docs that list two variables 'make
PORTSDIR=/$' and 'make PREFIX=/$'. I have tried this with the users home
path, but it still tries to build in /usr/tmp/*. This fails to a
'Permision denied' error because this user does not have write
permissions to /usr/tmp. 

What steps do I need to take (besides changing /usr/tmp permissions) to
remedy this?

Thank you.
