fixing a mistakeby spx2 (Deacon)

spx2 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have ubuntu installed,I was in error when I downloaded the Perl 5.12.3 source and unzipped and then installed in /usr/local (the default one) Perl 5.12.3
The problem now is that I have Ubuntu's Perl which is 5.10.1 and 5.12.3 and somehow because /usr/local is before /usr in $PATH it seems that 5.12.3 is now the Perl on my machine, and at the same time I discover some modules are not working so good or not working at well on it, so I'd like to uninstall 5.12.3
How do I do that ? How do I uninstall it ? Because I've looked at the Makefile and it does not have a uninstall target.
I could go through all the files that are in /usr/local and delete any Perl-related ones ?
So the question is, how do I uninstall Perl
I know about App::perlbrew and it's an awesome module, but I wasn't aware of it when I tried to uninstall.
