Usually most source tarballs if you still have the directory you compiled from, you can issue ./configure --uninstall

Then you have to go back and delete everything manually. I usually issue a locate command to see where everything is installed and then go in delete everything.

Or you get the tarball, run ./configure as you did before then do a make uninstall.
