Searching compiled installed programs

Hi, I'm running SuSE 9.1 and RPM is great, but sometimes i am required to compile sources to get them to work. Is there any possible way i can view a history of compiled programs i've done, if so is there a way to uninstall them and how?

You can keep track of everything you compile, and uninstall etc.. as long as you use something like installwatch or make_uninstall.
