I think that if you go to the directory where you compiled the source and did "make install" and instead type "make uninstall", you'll remove the files and set your system back to pre-wine status.

Although if you just want to try another version, you can untar the tarball, and then do

./configure --prefix=/path/to/temp/wine/new/version/directory
make install

That way you won't have to remove your old setup.
