'make' (without the 'install' bit) (as well as 'configure')
should run quite fine without sudo if the source tree is
somewhere in the users home directory (or some other place
the user has write permisions for like e.g. /tmp).

That's were it's definitely needed when the installation
is to be done into e.g. /ur/local (which is the default),
i.e. anywhere where the user doesn't have write permissions
