Possible to uninstall stuff easily?
 
I have done an LFS system and am trying to follow a howto i found on setting up a mail server with a couple differnt packages. How ever it did not work, everything was compiled by source. Is there an easy way to remove these packages all together so I can find another howto and start over from scratch with out having a bunch of extra crap laying around on my system? Thanks..

edit:

If it helps the programs im trying to uninstall are postfix and courier-imap

is there an option in the make files for uninstalling such as

make uninstall

just a thought?

Thanks PeaceDog, I tried that but postfix didnt seem to have that option, I guess I will just have to delete some of em manually and leave the rest cause I have no idea everything installed.. :)
