Installing/Uninstalling with Redhat 7.3

I installed vic from source, but despite my best efforts, I cannot get it to work. So, not knowing how to uninstall it, I installed an earlier version over it. I can't find where the earlier version is and locate will only show me the newer version. Synaptic has only the older version in the package list, which isn't surprising. When I type in 'vic' I get the newer version. I installed the older version from a binary (not compiled specifically for 7.3, but --test -i didn't complain) using 'rpm -ivh name.i386.rpm. How do I get the older program properly installed (and the newer version removed)?

As root - rpm -e name.i386.rpm. As for the one compiled, go to install directory and try make uninstall.

I don't want to uninstall the binary version(1.1.3-6) of vic just the version(1.1.5) I complied from source. I already tried 'make uninstall', but no luck. I want to get the binary version to work.
