How to Uninstall Python2.3 wich was compiled frm source?

Hi, It has been over a week by now, that i am trying to run the liquid_weather++ superkaramba theme, and i cant make it work
I think it is because i messed up the python packages, with differents versions.
My question is how can i erase a packages(in this case python2.3) wich was installed from source??
I erased the python2.3* wich had the source, is still a way around to completely erase all that i previously installed when i compiled that packages???
Because I want to install python-base , python , libpython all over again but this time with the same version.

Many software distributions support the 'make uninstall' target. Try that, or just peruse the Makefile.

OR you could just install it again, to some random directory (eg. ~/python_test_install) and observe what files go where.
