These two commands need MSYS to run correctly, because otherwise you
won't have Posix-compliant shell, Make, and other utilities needed for
the build.

No need to hesitate: just say

  make install prefix=/some/where/else

to get everything installed in that other place.

distribution, so what else is needed?
