uninstalling software


after i install by ./configure, make, make install how do i uninstall every thing i installed. rpms are easy to do but installing from source im not sure.
looks like make uninstall if i kept the make file around. does anyone know of any good gui softare that will keep track of softare you installed from source that runs on kde. i did a quick search about making a rpm from source and im kinda confused. is this possible to do.

thanks for any advise,
AD

you can normally run "make uninstall" in the directory you installed it from. so don't delete it. if you have, then there is no way to remove it otehr than manually deleting the files.
