Uninstaller can uninstall too much

Just a warning to the unwary -- I built GNU prolog 1.2.16 from source, then 
decided to update, so I went 'make uninstall' as superuser. However I had 
installed it under /usr, and therefore the uninstall rule emptied 
my /usr/bin, /usr/lib and /usr/include directories, completely trashing my 
system! I'm now reinstalling the whole thing.
