You can run 'make install' as any user which has permission
to write to the target install directories.  You can
install OpenLDAP in your user directory if you like...

        ./configure --prefix=$HOME/openldap ...
        make install

There are a number of 3rd party packagers who might provide
such... see the FAQ.
