Try the following site:

I use the following script on my linux box as a regular user (installs 
in /usr/local)

rm -rf $prog
rm -f $prog.tar
cp ~/language/C/$prog.tar.gz ~/tmp
cd ~/tmp
gunzip $prog.tar.gz
tar -xf $prog.tar
cd $prog

After you are finish, do a maek install as root.

If you do not want to use /usr/local you can change the location using 
./configure prefix==/opt/gnu...
I believe Sun suggest you install it in the /opt directory.
