Removing GD lib for php

(Using a Fedora 9 platform)

I've installed GD library from in order to have jpeg and png support in php

However, from the things I have read, I should have used the gd version that cam bundled with php-5.2 (This is related to a Drupal issue) so I would like to uninstall the gd lib that i installed from

I have installed gd-2.0.35 from source in the /usr/local directory.

I've never uninstalled library files from source before (as opposed to rpm). Can someone point me in the right direction on how to do that?

'gd-2.0.35' has a Makefile with 'make uninstall'.
'cd gd-2.0.35/'
# make uninstall

If you don't have the (extracted) source code any more,
extract gd-2.0.35.tar.gz and run './configure' .. 'make'
# 'make install' and then # 'make uninstall'.

The /usr/local/ part of 'make uninstall' looks like this :
  rm -f '/usr/local/bin/annotate'
 rm -f '/usr/local/bin/gdparttopng'
 rm -f '/usr/local/bin/gdtopng'
 rm -f '/usr/local/bin/gd2copypal'
 rm -f '/usr/local/bin/gd2topng'
 rm -f '/usr/local/bin/pngtogd'
 rm -f '/usr/local/bin/pngtogd2'
 rm -f '/usr/local/bin/webpng'
 rm -f '/usr/local/bin/gd2togif'
 rm -f '/usr/local/bin/gdcmpgif'
 rm -f '/usr/local/bin/giftogd2'
 rm -f '/usr/local/bin/bdftogd'
 rm -f '/usr/local/bin/gdlib-config'
 rm -f '/usr/local/include/gd.h'
 rm -f '/usr/local/include/gdfx.h'
 rm -f '/usr/local/include/gd_io.h'
 rm -f '/usr/local/include/gdcache.h'
 rm -f '/usr/local/include/gdfontg.h'
 rm -f '/usr/local/include/gdfontl.h'
 rm -f '/usr/local/include/gdfontmb.h'
 rm -f '/usr/local/include/gdfonts.h'
 rm -f '/usr/local/include/gdfontt.h'
 rm -f '/usr/local/include/entities.h'
 /bin/sh ./libtool   --mode=uninstall rm -f '/usr/local/lib/'
rm -f /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/libgd.a
