I have installed emacs24.4 through instructions on this site. Now I want to uninstall and remove it completely, but since I haven't installed emacs via apt-get I can't seem to remove it either via apt-get remove or apt-get purge completely. Do you have any idea how to remove it and all files installed with it?

    If you followed these instructions you can 'make uninstall' – taliezin Mar 10 '15 at 9:14

You can remove /opt/emacs as you have asked configure to install everything in /opt/emacs

or run make uninstall which is safer one.
