The cleanest way may be to re-run the configure, make and make install,
except that *this* time specify an installation directory prefix

     ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/curl-7.19.0 .....

assuming that directory doesn't exist. Then, once it's installed, you have
a perfect reference for which files to delete... Just walk through the
/usr/local/curl-7.19.0 tree and delete the equivalent files from other
places in the filesystem.
