make uninstall could do rmdir

  recently, I run "make uninstall" with a package I previously installed
by "make install".

The package heavily uses the feature
        foodir = ...
        foo_HEADERS = ...
and thus created many directories.  After the uninstall, the directories
are empty.  I imagined that "make uninstall" could remove them in such case.

Why this is not working?

Is there an easy way to accomplish this?

I see the manual says:
        Note that `uninstall' is not meant as a replacement for a real
        packaging tool.
So perhaps that is the answer.

Thank you in advance for any comments.
