I want to take liquidwars off my system but I did not install it with an rpm. Is there just the executable or are there other files compiled and placed by the initial install short of links?

Not all support 'make uninstall', though, so from now on I'd use checkinstall (http://asic-linux.com.mx/~izto/checkinstall/download.php) to make RPMs off your tarballs.
