Supposing i plan to install say eg. MySQL on my system (a tarball ofcourse)
and i want to install it in '/usr/local/mysql' path.
But by mistake during the './configure --prefix='/usr/local/mysql' i forget to give the '--prefix' option.
I guess it will install it somewhere in the /usr/local dir. if i am not mistaken.
my question is : what if i want to remove or delete all these files now. ( i guess they will be all scattered in the /usr/local/bin, /usr/local/man etc. )
so how to get rid of them now??
