Indeed. I should have mentioned that. I do this for all the development

For this to work, I should be able to do the make successfully: but this

Precompiled, I don't know, but you can usually install packages you 
compile yourself to local directories by setting the PREFIX variable: 
./configure --prefix=/home/gphilip/. This will install LyX into 
/home/gphilip/bin, /home/gphilip/share/, etc. You'll also need to set 
some environment variables, I believe, so that the libraries will be 
found, if you have to install any dependencies, but those can be handled 
the same way.


That said, perhaps it's easier to get root to install LyX for you.
