For some reason, it never occurred to me to have deinstall or uninstall
targets in the makefiles.  They would be simple enough on some platforms
that I agree that they should exist.

It can be done manually on a system where things were installed in
the default locations by deleting:

   /var/dcc/libexec		./configure --libexecdir=X
					too many files to list explicitly

   /var/dcc			            --homedir=X
					too many files to list explicitly

   /usr/local/bin/cdcc		            --bindir=X

   /usr/local/man/{cat,man}[08]/dcc.[08]*   --mandir=X

   whatever you've done manually with rc scripts and cron jobs
