Removing/Uninstalling Programs


What is the best way to remove a program that was built from source?

ie. I did

Code:
./configure && make && make install
etc, etc.

Now how would I remove that package?



Distro: Slackware 9.0

Go into the directory where you typed all those commands, and type "make uninstall".
