Indeed, IO::Tty needs to be compiled. Of course you don't need to be root to install a compiler; you can always install it locally into your home (and even an admin would probably first install new software locally to give it a try, before releasing it into /opt/...).
The problem is that the module needs to be compiled in a "compatible" way to Perl. This means that, if you compile the module with, say, gcc, but your Perl was compiled with a different compiler, or with a different version of the same compiler, it might be that they don't work together. Of course you can give it a try, but be prepared that in the end, you may have to create your own local Perl version too.
