    If you are running Slackware, you should be able to go to a terminal, su to root, and run: pkgtool

    learn how to make packages using checkinstall , then you can remove them using pkgtool.

    never do a make install

    install checkinstall from extra instead, configure with a prefix of /usr/local, and run checkinstall -ss to make and install a package, it dumps a package to the local directory which you can keep for future use too.
