Need to delete a slack package

I installed parts of my slackware package D (Development package w/ c,c++,make etc.) on my firewall so that i could compile my kernel and now i want to get rid of it. I'm sure slackware doesn't offer any kind of package removal so where are those tools stored so that i can delete them?

slack does have package removal.

as root type
this will bring up a nice ncurses pkg tool that will allow you to remove the packages you installed.
