The 3.0 Unified Installer offers this as an option. See 
for a discussion of the merits and demerits of non-root installation.

If you're installing 2.5, you could take a look at the 3.0 Unified 
Installer scripts for clues on adapting the procedure. You'll find it 
much easier if your system already has the libjpeg and libz libraries.
