uninstall

I run "make install" of Python 2.4.4 and now I discovered that I do not like
the default placement of my install. The Makefile does not support
an "uninstall" option.

Is there a way to uninstall Python compiled from sources?

If you're installing from sources "manually", you might want to
consider checkinstall to give you the option of an uninstall for those
software distributions which don't support "make uninstall":
I know about checkinstall and I often use it. If I remember correctly, Python
failed to work with it. I admit I did not try to use checkinstall this time.
