Sometimes. Look at the README that came with the source. Usually it tells you how to uninstall. Sometimes make uninstall is the right command. Other times it's something different.

Also, you can look into checkinstall. My understanding is that it monitors what 'make install' does, and creates a package which you can use to uninstall. The package is a Slackware style package, I believe, but you probably can convert it to whatever package management tool you use.

That's true. Forgot about checkinstall. It will at least make deb's, rpm's and .tgz's (slackware?)...
