Thumbs up slackware 8 Uninstalling programs

Right another newbie question. So i untarred and unzipped and ''made'' my downloaded proggie in my /home directory. (propably the wrong one; but thats my last question) Anyway how do i uninstall my program. Should I unmake'' it? (how do I do that) And what is the best way to get rid of all files from that program... I want to do that as fast as possible without polluding my system with program files...
