If it's a package, then purge the package and also make sure you purge
related packages that were installed as dependencies. (for instance,
it's quite common to see people that remove the 'gnuradio' package but
leave the 'volk' package installed and that can ruin your day ...)

If it was built from source and you still have the exact build repo
you used for the make install, then make unsintall should work. If you
don't have it anymore, you're stuck with manually looking for files

The best option IMHO is to never install gnuradio in /usr or
/usr/local and _always_ install in a separate prefix ( like
/opt/gnuradio or ~/gnuradio or something ), which pybombs can do
pretty easily but it's also not hard to do by hand.
This way you can just nuke the entire prefix, or even maintain several
prefix in parallel to have several version (like keep a stable version
and a bleeding edge version)
