[plt-scheme] PLT Scheme svn uninstall

AFAIK, there isn't. I was looking for some uninstall method a couple
of times, but couldn't find any.

I think the easiest way is to install into a local directory (i.e.,
use "./configure --prefix=${HOME}/local --enable-macprefix" in
plt/src, then make install), then look for all files in ${HOME}/local
and remove these from /usr/local. This may fail to find some files
from earlier versions of PLT Scheme, but should be broad enough to
avoid conflicts with the packaged version.

A better way is to simply install versions from SVN or Mercurial or
Git or whatever into a local subdirectory in the first place.
