Can we use ssh to compile and install binaries? I've had to do this a number
of times with my Dreamhost account for instance - mainly to compile command
line programs to be used with (Rev) cgi's. I can;t remember the details -
but I must have used my user account and not sudo / root.

For instance if I were to fully move over Id have 2 command line aplications
i'd want to comile from soure and then I'd need to install MediaWiki - I
should be able to do that with the existing ssh access - no?

So would like to know if there are any limitations regarding ssh access - as
Ill have to decide between Dreamhost and On-Rev - or to keep both :)
