Not really.  As I've mentioned before, you should do

  ./configure --prefix=/home/eddie/lib
  make install

and finally add `/home/eddie/lib/bin' to your $PATH environment
variable (e.g. using your personal `~/.profile' file).  You can always
use `/home/eddie/lib' as a configure prefix for your private packages;
if the package follows GNU installation conventions, binaries will
always be found in `/home/eddie/lib/bin'.
