Can I delete source files?
After I compile a program from source, can I safely delete the source files?

Yes, but I think you should keep the source as the Makefile usually contains a useful uninstall target (so you can do a make uninstall to remove the software altogether). You can often do a make clean to remove all binary packages in the source tree that may be taking up lots of space.
