Hello Matthew, thanks for your reaction. Would using a src RPM make any 
difference? I guess I would do a ./configure, make and make install and 
wonder just as much where alle the binaries etc. have ended up as if 
when I had used a tarball source install (pardon my Dutch :-).

Are applications made ("maked") from source RPMs easier to deinstall as 
apps made from tarball sources?

TIA!
