I'd be a little wary of this... If you still have the system RPM for 
pulseaudio installed, I would strongly recommend using a different prefix.

You should be able to use your home directory fine:
/bootstrap.sh --prefix=$HOME/pulsegit && make -j3 && make install

Even then, pulse still insists on writing a policy kit file in a root 
only location.. I generally hack the configure script for this....

You'd run the built pulse via $HOME/pulsegit/bin/pulseaudio binary not 
just "pulseaudio".
