I emailed the admin, He told me thay will do a system upgrade in the
fall, at which time emacs, irssi mutt, wget and anything else he needs
will be installed if requested.

Until then he seems out of luck unless like you said there is an
emacs-lite version floating around somewhere. 

I will email the admin perhaps and ask to use /tmp just for the time I
need to compile.
