Where in there did you do the git pull? And was a make clean or git clean

I think you should be in the clear with that procedure, but just to be
sure, I think it'd be worth rm'ing all .beam files you find manually
after the uninstall.

local.ini is usually preserved across installations, but make uninstall
is obviously an intent to get rid of all traces of a package, so it should
get removed :)
