That depends on the particular software's build/installation system.

If using autoconf/configure style, you can use:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/genext2fs

And then it should install under there.

It might be better to figure out how to get it in pkgsrc or ask someone to 
help for pkgsrc, since others can benefit.
