If you've downloaded and built it from a .tar.gz or
.tar.bz2, you can safely delete this directory after
successfully having issued install commands. If it's built
from Debian or RatHead or <insert favorite Linux dist. here>
source packages, I don't know. But I'd assume they keep
binaries, source and *development* in seperate categories.
