Let me second Jason's comment: don't do this!

Find the first error that arises from an installation as an ordinary user, and
try to work from there. As Jason says, it certainly sounds like a permissions
problem. (It could be that compilers are needing root permissions, but we'd
need more info. If you can't figure it out, consider posting the very first
error you get with a clean install.)

Many, many Amber users run on Mac's without needing root privileges.
