We have a similar situation on our big HP-UX boxes.  build and compile 
software to /home/[USER]/bin and /home/[USER]/lib, etc.

It takes up a ton of room if multiple people need to utilize it on the 
same machine and requires that the users are comfortable building their 
own software, but it's the best i've found so far.

The other suggestion is to befriend whoever has root and ask them
