[fpc-pascal] Unistalling FPC (and reinstalling from svn)

I have a silly question :  which is the best way to uninstall FPC ?  I
have used
the 2.0.4 tarball (Linux) and the install script included within.  I
chose to install
it in /usr/local.

Now, I need to compile from sources (so debug some problems with sqldb)
and i want to make sure that there are no files left from the initial FPC.

Unfortunately, there is no uninstall script and I need to delete
individual files manually  ;  which is not extremely difficult but i
can't be sure that
i haven't missed some files (for example the man pages  and the executables in
/usr/local/bin ).

Also, after compiling FPC  with 'make build'  ,  if i execute 'make
install'  will it
copy everyting in  /usr/local   by default ?   Is the destination
directory configurable
