I would recommend using checkinstall to install a app from source instead of make install. Checkinstall will create a .deb files and keep track of the files that are installed. When you are ready to remove the Application you can can run dpkg -r

apt-get install checkinstall

compiling and install from source

checkinstall ( replacing make install )
