from the same directory you typed "make install" some programs also have a "make uninstall" target which will uninstall the software for you.
If it doesnt then you will need to work out exactly what files it installed where by looking at the output for "make install" and remove them manually.
Two important differences:
an rpm is a pre-compiled binary package
tar.gz is simply the source code compressed into one file
as stated above, you must use "make uninstall" to remove
the files installed when it was compiled.
