Perforce has an installation guide on their site that is pretty thorough.

You’ll first need to download the software. It’s a single binary named p4d and if you copy it into the directory /usr/local/bin it will be available on your PATH You will also need to make it executable by running chmod +x /usr/local/bin/p4d Once installed, you can start the daemon by specifying the protocol, host, and port:

p4d -p

See their user guide for more advanced configurations.
