Uninstall a package in RedHat

I have download a package cconv and install it with the following steps :

$ tar -xzvf cconv-0.6.2.tar.gz
$ cd cconv-0.6.2
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local
$ make
$ sudo make install

Is there a way to completely uninstall it ? The current problem is I need to make change to a configuration file. Afterwards reinstallation, the change doesn't reflect on the server.

If I install the changed configuration on a new server, it works fine. Any advise ?

If the packager was not lazy, then you simply use:
make uninstall

If not, you're out of luck and you need to manually hunt for config files.

"make -n install" might help.

For the future, when installing from source, use paco. It will provide you with a list of all the files used in the install process.
