At first glance, it looks relevantly trivial to implement "uninstall", at least in a way that will work reliably on GNU systems. But I'm most probably missing some important details.

Giuseppe, if I find the time to work on this, would you accept a patch (for 3.0, it seems useless to work on 2.0.x)? Of course provided that the patch is not crappy :-) I think that every GNU package should support "uninstall", it is a standard target and something that users, not surprisingly at all, expect.

Sure, but I think it will be better if this patch will be used directly by Mozilla Firefox (of course if they are interested to include it). I think it can be very useful for Firefox users too.

I never used checkinstall before but from what I can see, it executes "./configure && make && make install" tracking where files will be copied.

Isn't possible to create a dummy Makefile that will copy GNU IceCat files to the final directory? I didn't try yet but I guess there is need only to modify the `run_moz' variable in the `icecat' script to point to the right position of `run-icecat.sh' file. After, the install rule of Makefile should just copy the file `icecat' to /usr/bin and the rest of files in any other directory (paying attention to modify `run_moz' in order).
