This seems to work in parts. I've set for a test and run 'gmake install'
as normal user:

$ DESTDIR=/tmp/local export DESTDIR
$ gmake install

this gives file below /tmp/local:

$ find /tmp/local/
/tmp/local/
/tmp/local/usr
/tmp/local/usr/local
/tmp/local/usr/local/share
/tmp/local/usr/local/share/applications
/tmp/local/usr/local/share/applications/pidgin.desktop
/tmp/local/usr/local/etc
/tmp/local/usr/local/etc/gconf
/tmp/local/usr/local/etc/gconf/schemas
/tmp/local/usr/local/etc/gconf/schemas/purple.schemas

but the installation fails for libpurple:
...
Making install in plugins
Making install in perl
Files found in blib/arch: installing files in blib/lib into architecture
dependent library tree
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ERROR: Can't create '/usr/local/lib/purple-2/perl'
Do not have write permissions on '/usr/local/lib/purple-2/perl'
...

I'll try to move the full source tree to the EeePC and try the 'gmake
install' there...

Thanks for your hint.
