I have followed this tutorial http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/quickstart.html on installing OpenLDAP, but now I want to remove it.

I'm not sure which command should I use for that. Can somebody point me in right direction?

If the makefile is correctly written, you should be able to cd back into the directory where you ran ./configure and make and this time run make uninstall

You should also look at installing checkinstall to use in these situations - it will allow you to build from source, but have the packages tracked by apt.

sudo apt-get install checkinstall and then man checkinstall
