If it means that much to you, rm the sbin/swat binary, as well as the swat
directory under your install prefix.  That's pretty much all there is to

Hmm, there is no way to not have it installed at all then? Ideally I don't 
want it just sitting there taking up space if I'm never going to use it and 
it's just one other application to be concerned about from a security pov. I

typically remove unused stuff or just don't install it period.

Or failing that, a make uninstallswat command or some such?
