There is no Red Hat package for that?

There should be a way. Are you trying to install everything off source?
Which are the versions of gwave, guile and GTK you have?

That might. But you have to ensure a few things:
- the versions of stuff you install must play nicely together
(usually there are READMEs or similar texts to help you with that).
- If you install part of the things off RPM (e.g. GTK) and others off
source, the `developer' part of the RPM install should be there as
well (sometimes packages are split in a `user' package with all you
need to run programs and a `developer' package, with all you need to
compile things against this package).

No, I don't think so.

You unpacked the package with `tar xzvf package.tar.gz', then went into
the directory, then invoked `./configure', then `make', then `make install'?
If the answer is ``yes'' then you just have to change into this directory
again and invoke `make uninstall'.
If the answer is ``no'', then we'd have to know how exactly you installed
those packages. May be find a friendly local Red Hat hacker.
Hope that helps
