Really simple way:

Run ./configure and make as usual, but don't make install yet.
Run touch /baseline (any file works) to set a baseline date.
Run make install.
Run find / -cnewer /baseline | sed -e '/^\/proc/d' -e '^\/sys/d' >
/packagename.txt .  This will show all of the files that were updated
in the make install.

Then you can just run rm `cat /packagename.txt` to remove the package.
