So I installed fwbackups to give it a whirl to see if it was what I was looking for in a backup solution. So far I am not seeing features that I want. Also it errors out everytime a back up job runs. It doesn't matter if it is a scheduled backup set or a one time back up, I get this error

Needless to say since it doesn't include the features I am looking for and it errors out I want to remove it. I am running Debian Lenny amd64. There is not an fwbackups package in the repos so I had to compile from source. However I can't figure out how to remove it now.
I tried using apt-get but it can't find it
debian:/home/jared# apt-get remove --purge fwbackups

When I look at the source tar I downloaded this is all that I have

I have checked /usr/share/local/fwbackups and there is not any scripts listed to remove this package.
Does anyone have any idea how I can remove this from my machine?
