I didn't choose to install it here, I am forced to.
The flash box is running Debian, and the *NIX admin will only apt-get 
packages, and won't even do that unless he has to. I'm using my shell to 
run CVS, as well as doxygen, which requires graphviz, which requires 
fontconfig, which requires expat (whew).
So I was forced to build all this from scratch in my own $HOME dir.

In any event,

$ CPPFLAGS="-I$HOME/usr/include" LDFLAGS="-L$HOME/usr/lib" \
  ./configure --prefix=$HOME/usr

worked, so thanks all!
