I tried hard to find a list for which the present message is not off-topic:
address@hidden is the best option came up with.

Almost all GNU (and lots of non-GNU) projects come with a standard INSTALL
file.  While this explains `make install', it does not cover `make uninstall'
at all.  Since the GNU coding standards say that "All GNU programs should
have the following targets in their Makefiles: [...] `uninstall' [...]"
I wonder why this omission.  I realize I should ask this question to
the maintainer of the INSTALL file, but who is he/she?
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
All the best,
