Hi Audsin,

No, a make clean will not remove content installed by make install.
For the next version I think we'll include a make uninstall target
for this purpose.
However, a make install of 0.4.8 will overwrite the old (0.4.7)install.

Some of the plugins have new versions, and when it comes to shared
libraries the version number is part of the file name. So here
a reinstall of new versions will not overwrite the old ones. But
when adding plugins to the config file you have to specify the
filename, so there will be no redundancy-type problems. You will
only have a few extra obsolete .so files installed. You can remove
all old olsrd plugins before installing new ones by doing a
rm -i /usr/lib/olsr*
given you have installed the libs using make install.

We'll have a better solution for this in 0.4.9 :)
