Apt is a really powerful utility and I recommend
that you switch
over to Debian if possible because its package management rocks!
You better believe me because I was a Fedora / Redhat loyalist
(still am) for a long time! :D
In this context, how does one undo an installation done by compiling
from source ? It is difficult to know which files are created/stored
and in which directories by `make install' .

eh? Debian package management uses .deb files just like redhat
has .rpms. Anyway i think you want to uninstall a package installed via
source. You have two options.
1. Use checkinstall
2. use the scripts supplied with the program
To use the first option you need to install the checkinstall utility.
Google for it. For the second option, you need to execute the command:
"make uninstall" in the source tree of the program. Now if the author
is good, he should've provided that script. If not you need to
trackdown all files and delete it. Dont ask me how because I haven't
ever tried it.
