Comment (by mcayland):

 I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean. If you install PostgreSQL
 from packages, then you need either access to the root or postgres user
 accounts to be able to copy PostGIS into the PostgreSQL lib/ directory. I
 guess you could manually change all of the paths if you only have database
 superuser access, but it seems a bit of a long-winded way of going about
 the whole process.

 Note that PGXS does understands DESTDIR, and so if you want to do an out-
 of-tree build then you can try and go with:

 make DESTDIR=/path/to/somewhere install
