Hostmonster : Installing MySQLdb at a specific location

I've using MySQLdb for years, but always on servers where I had
system-wide access.

I have an account on Hostmonster and would like to do some
development there, but although python2.6 is available, MySQLdb is
not installed. I do not believe there is a system-wide access, nor
do I expect sysadmins to do my any favors. 

I have SSH access and it is a linux OS.
uname -a gives me:
Linux 2.6.32-42.1.BHsmp #1 SMP Tue Jun 28
17:06:41 MDT 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

A 'local' bin directory is provided. I have downloaded
MySQL-python-1.2.3 and am looking at the docs, but so far I haven't
found any documentation that tells me how (or if) I may install 
to anything other than a default path.

Any comments are welcome.
