[R] Installing R into home directory?

I've been trying to install R into a user's home directory for them by compiling from source code, on a machine for which neither of us has administrative access. I've run configure using the --prefix option to specify their home directory.

This seems to work OK up to a point, but when running make, it seems to expect to be able to install IDL into /usr/local/, and if you are unable to do this, you seem to have to abort make. Any ideas as to how I can work round this?
