Installing Stream SDK WITHOUT Root Permissions

Struggling to install the ICD; no access to /etc/.

I'm attempting to install the Stream SDK (2.2) on an HPC cluster for which I don't have root access.  I haven't had any problems building or installing the library itself, but the ICD installation requires that the files be placed in /etc/OpenCL/vendors/.

Asking those who maintain the cluster to install the files isn't an option.

It seems to me that this is a bit of an oversight, and I'm sure there must be other people in a similar situation...  Is there not any way (via an environment variable, for example) to force the library to look in a different directory for the ICD?
