On the 'Quick install for Unix' page it says that you do not need to be 
root in order to install TeX Live, and you are encouraged to run 
'./install-tl' as a normal user. However, this fails almost immediately 
when the installer attempts to create the directory '/usr/local/texlive/'.

How are you supposed to install TeX Live without running the command 
'sudo ./install-tl'?
