Uninstallation of the installed packages?


Hi all,
I've installed WindowMaker in Solaris Machine. I like to uninstall the same. Generally how to uninstall any package/software that is installed in the machine?
Windowmaker is installed using the source package. ie., i used make install to install it.

Request you to give me the command for uninstalling windowmaker.

thanx,
Wittyguy

Since you dont have the uninstall section in the package you installed..i think the only way is just to study the install script of the package and delete things manually
