on some linux systems, murgalua just isn't available to me and I don't have authority to install it

Sorry, but that's not true. Regardless of what permissions you have in the file system, as long as you have a writable home directory you can install whatever software you want. You can create a $HOME/bin directory and add that to your PATH variable. You can put executables here. You can modify your LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable to include $HOME/lib for libraries that can't be installed into /lib, /usr/lib, or /usr/local/lib.

When installing from source with the typical "configure/make/make install" techique you can configure --prefix=$HOME or edit the config script to have the application built to install entirely within your home directory.
