Try to run 'make uninstall' in the directory where you ran the ./configure
If that doesn't work,it's not easily feasible:
You have to look in the Makefile and the install target, to know what is installed and where; or reinstall and save the output:
make install >install_output
then remove manually what have been installed.
And for future compilation, learn to use the 'checkinstall' utility which generates a rmp package instead of the brute 'make install'; you can then use the rpm command to install or uninstall the package.
