normally "make uninstall" should work, in doubt repeat the same build 
with exact same params - if this not works you hopefully where smart 
enough to use a prefix out of /usr instead let "make install" spit 
around your system

why not make a static build at all for "testing purposes" which leads in 
a single binary and skip "make install" completly?

in short: guys learn how to build proper packages
