if you are running an rpm distro such as RH or mandrake

rpm -Uvh < packagename> .rpm
will replace them for you

rpm -e < packagename without the rpm suffix >
will uninstall ( unless something depends on them )

/.configure
make
make install

will over write them

make uninstall < package name >
will remove ( if nothing depends on it )

you really have to be more specific. What is your distro? How did you install the stuff? COmpiled yourself, through rpm, apt-get or what? What happens when you try to uninstall? Do you get error messages?
