The nice think of the command line installer, is that you can install to
your $HOME directory as well. You do not require root permissions.

Use Git or SubVersion to checkout whatever version you want. On the
Github mirror, via the website, you can download a ZIP archive of a
branch too.

The simply do:

   make ide
   make bigide

depending on how much you want included by default into Lazarus. Once
you have a Lazarus executable, then you can build a new lazarus from
inside Lazarus (eg: when installing new components etc).

Been doing this process for 5 years and it never failed me.
