How to uninstall packages installed via compiling and installpkg?

I compiled wine and installed it via installpkg.
The mistake i made is i renamed the package name to a number for eg 1.tgz and then installed the package using installpkg.The problem is such installed packages are not showing up in my pkgtool or even n sbopkg.So.plz tell me how to remove those pkgs?
But,those packages are present and working.

You can find a package typing the following command: ls /var/log/packages | grep *string here*
And if the package is called 1.tgz you can remove it by typing removepkg 1.tgz or removepkg 1
