You could take a look into Makefile, but that's probably not really a
good solution.

Why don't you just install Emacs in your own home directory? When you
run configure you could specify '--prefix=~/emacs'. That would install
Emacs in a directory called 'emacs' under your home directory when you
get to the 'make install' part.
