maybe make distclean (or something like that... to be sure, have a look at the Makefile)

Opera distributes a precompiled binary. Most of it is in /usr/share/opera

Probably just
rm -rf /usr/share/opera to delete the opera support files
rm /usr/bin/opera to delete the executable
rm -rf ~/.opera to delete the settings in the home folder (do for each user that used Opera)
