To be able to easily uninstall Emacs, I installed it in a prefix.
Configure it with
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/$emacs_version
Then when you type
$ sudo make install
it will install into the chosen prefix.  Then create symlinks into
$ sudo ln -sirv $prefix/bin/* /usr/local/bin

Later, to uninstall:
$ sudo rm -rI $prefix
$ find -L -type l /usr/local/bin
<Review the list of broken links in /usr/local/bin.  Confirm you want
to remove them all>
$ sudo find -L -type l /usr/local/bin -exec rm {} +
