[lug] Private yum install tree?

I need to install software for my use on CentOS 6.3, but I do NOT
have root access.  Of course I can use ./configure, make, and
make install.  But it would be so much easier if I could use yum,
or some other package manager.

Is there a way to have yum use a private repository,
and install to a private directory tree?

I've read the man pages and googled, and found a little on
setting up secondary yum repos (with root), but I need
a private non-root install tree.
