If you are uninstalling something you installed with an rpm you just need to
rpm -e <app name>

I am using slackware now... I know there is a package management in slackware, too but what I was referring to is the ones installed from source.

I think you can cd to the sources of the program and type make uninstall, I'm not sure but you can try that.
