    I'd supposed 'make uninstall' would to the job but that depends on automake and if it was used to make the makefile.

    As long as you have a clean source tree, you don't have to worry about that. Installing it will overwrite all the files anyway, and it won't use any files that aren't overwritten, except for configuration files, which you probably know about anyway.
