building and installing under $HOME

Hello all,

I know I can use options for make to insure that emacs and all the other
programs that I will need (flite, eflite, emacspeak, etc.) install
 under $HOME.  I also know that there are several on the list that are
 using muultiple versions of emacs and/or emacspeak.  What I would like
 to know is if there are any caveats to doing this.  

I am running debian sid.  Emacspeak is terribly out of date in debian.
I am afraid of installing over a working install, as I really have no
one here to readily help if/when things go south.

One of the issues I can think of that I might have to worry about is the
info pages.  If I install everything under $HOME, can I add the system
info dir to the info dir path so that the software that I install
outside of my $HOME environment can still be reached?

Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can offer,

Robert D. Crawford                                      rdc1x@comcast.net

A visit to a fresh place will bring strange work.
