just use the --prefix at configure time so you can delete a single 
folder and you are done or far better build a apckage at your own

rely on "make uninstall" was never a clean thing, for no software, 
because "make install" does not really track the installed pieces nor in 
a uniformed way

normally all the temporary build stuff is, well, temporary - and build 
should not happen on prodcution machines - they shouldn't have installed 
a compiler at all
