reason I didn't want to run ``make install' as root is because the

This happens even when a prefix is set. I didn't want to mess up my

as my local user instead (so the install succeeds, with the exception of
modifying /lib).

So perhaps another fix is needed here, to fix the configure scripts in
case a local prefix is specified; or add a flag to configure to allow
local installs of NetworkManager (which would disable modifying /lib and
maybe disable the check-if-file-owned-by-root check for plugins). I
think the documentation should describe how to run multiple NM versions.

You can overwrite the UDEV dir (which defaults to /lib/udev).

./configure --prefix=/tmp/NM --with-udev-dir=/tmp/NM/lib/udev ...

[for the record]

I pushed 
to master.

now the option --without-udev-dir works as expected.
