[Spambayes] Local installation problem

I've seen this question asked several times on the digest page, but never
a good answer.
Is it possible to install Spambayes in a local directory?
$ python setup.py install
error: could not create '/usr/local/lib/python2.3/site-packages/spambayes': Permission denied
Can we re-direct this attempt to write to /usr/local/bin, which requires root,
to a directory underneath $HOME instead?
I'd think this would be a common request: i'm a user of a Unix system, but
not the administrator, and the admin can't be depended on to help out.
any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Todd
