When I install something from the ports collection, the makefile
nicely generates a packing list so I can deinstall it at a later time.

Is there an easy way to do this if I download some random tar file for 
which I would normally untar it, ./configure, and make install?  

In other words, I install something which is not in the ports
collection manually, I'd like to generate a packing list so I can use
pkg_delete to remove it.  Is there an easy way to do this?
