I know from experience on Debian that you also need to clean at least
$(prefix)/lib. The Right Tool(tm) though is to 'make uninstall' from the
sourcedir where you called 'make install'.
For the future, there are tools to avoid such problems. For one, OS X has a
package manager. Apart from that, you can always install in a really separate
prefix-dir (like /opt/subversion or -better- $(HOME)/svn) and modify
paths/make symlinks or use a specialised tool like 'stow'.

I'd appreciate you not top-posting, btw. ;)
