You would have to uninstall it using the package management tools of 
your distribution - for ubuntu, 'sudo apt-get remove digikam'. However, 
you should first remove it, otherwise your installation overwrites the 
files which apt-get thinks are in the package, and then they may be 
removed when you uninstall.

Once you ran 'make install', yes, you can remove the build folder.
