I would suggest starting from the INSTALL file in the distribution, the
"Installing MySQL from Generic Binaries on Unix/Linux"
"MySQL Installation Using a Source Distribution"
They describe installing from binary tarball or source as the root user, but
should be easy to adapt to use non-priviledged user.
