    Well, you could check the install target in your makefile and see which files get installed where, then remove them. Or add an uninstall target in the makefile to do it for you.

    Don't worry about uninstalling the old version. The new one will install over the old one, replacing it. If you gave configure the same prefix, anyway.

    Though if you are really worried about uninstalling it, then remove the executables from bin/ , there are 4 starting with php. Also remove the directories include/php and lib/php from whererver it's installed to.
