Uninstalling compiled software can be hit and miss, since it depends
whether the source makefile has an "uninstall" target in it, or not. So
the first thing I would do, is for the source where you compiled your
cd /tmp/quota-tools/ && su -c 'make uninstall'
If that doesn't work, then the makefile probably doesn't support the
feature, although it is worth looking at the makefile to see. The other
option, if not, is to delete the files by hand. There are various tar and
rm incantations to do that. But I would do it by hand, myself.
One other thing I will mention to you for the future is that if you find
yourself compiling software from source a lot, I really do recommend you
use stow [1,2]. It is a really useful piece of software and would have
helped you here easily.
