removing source code

I'm installing all of the KDE 3.4 source code. I'm wondering if I should be deleting the directory that I'm compiling from (/home/user/KDE_stuff/) after I install it?

It shouldn't affect KDE's operation either way. The only problem with leaving it is that it'll still be taking up space, and the only problem with deleting is that you'll have to reinstall the source if you need to recompile for some reason.
