If you installed from source, your package manager (rpm) has no idea that it's there. What will happen is that it will put the files from the rpm wherever they're supposed to go, and best case you'll just have a few unnecessary files strewn about your system. If you want to switch from your version to the rpm, run `make uninstall` the same way you did make earlier, and it will clean up. Then you can safely install the rpm.
