Yes it works. It removes all files generated by 'make'. It does not
yet remove XML files generated by 'make check' -- this is a known bug,

No, nor should it. To remove installed files run make uninstall (as
root if necessary).

Not really. The official way to uninstall from source is to run make
uninstall. You have to have the package configured the same as when
you installed it. This is standard for all autotools-based packages.
Hope this helps,
