oops, how does one re-install gcc?

Lets say you wanted to re-compile and install your copy of gcc and you
didn't want some of the files lying around, maybe you didn't want some
ada compiler anymore or something, and you wanted to make sure that
you didn't have leftovers from the previous copy.  How would you do
that?  The make install uses gcc, I don't know if it simply hasn't
actually finished compiling when make finishes or what, but I removed
all the old gcc and went to install the freshly compiled one and it
complained that the old one wasn't there anymore when I typed make
install.  It was my extra lfs which I've been using to learn about
optimization and which packages I like, so no big loss but I want to
know how I should have proceeded.

Thank you,
