You mean something you've installed outside the ports/pkg system?
I'm afraid the answer is that the only thing you can do is
labouriously identify each individual file and manually delete them.
There's a couple of tricks you can use to make the job easier -- if
you can positively identify some of the files you can extract the
timestamp and then hunt for files with a similar timestamp.
If you've still got the sources around, you can try installing using a
different prefix pointing at an empty directory -- eg. /tmp/something
-- supposing that the compile system permits that (all autoconf based
source packages do). Then compare what gets installed in there with
what's in your /usr/local
ports are your friend... trust the ports...
