[kde-linux] Install KDE themes not as superuser

Recently, the desktop at my workplace was updated to KDE 3.3; it appears
that themes for KDE 3.2+
need to be compiled first and are required to be installed in /usr.
Unfortunately, I do not
have superuser privileges. Is there any alternative way where I can install
these themes
in ~/.kde or somewhere and make them work?

Earlier, in KDE 3.1 themes did not contain compilable code and it used to
work by simply pointing
the theme manager to the theme file.

Thanks for your help and time,
