Thanks Matt,

I don't have a makefile handy to check for it, but a lot of stuff
comes with an uninstall make target.  (make uninstall)  Try it out.
Otherwise, you might have to hunt-down the files manually. (check the
make install and just do rm's)

Realised after testing that I had got ./configure's --prefix wrong (used

But "make uninstall" doesn't work and nothing obvious in Makefile.

An obvious solution is to delete the entries LDAP has parked in /opt and
re-do the "make install" but I am worried that this may leav esomething
pointing to a wrong place? Any better suggestions please?

FWIW, using 2.2.26 on SuSE 9.3

"make uninstall" was the first thing I tried - but there's no such target in the Makefile nor anything obvious to have the same effect. So I've gone ahead and hunted 'em down manually - not a bit task, but a surprise that it was necessary.

Maybe one for the developers - do any of them see this list?
