The last part, although common knowledge, is wrong. You generally don't
need root privileges to install software on Unix-like systems. It
suffices to have write permission on the directory where you want to
install things. For example, you can have a dedicated user "builder"
that compiles and installs software, and you make this user the owner
For mc, however, things are a little different with Linux, since it
installs the cons.saver program, which needs to be set-uid.
