  Familiarize yourself with the permissions system.  You probably untarred
  it as root and ran configure and make as root, thus all files in the
  Circle directory are owned by root and cannot be played with by lesser
  users.  The option: either have user 123 untar, run configure, and make
  or change the owner (chown) and any other neccessary permissions to fit
  user 123.
