I don't think this is a problem, cmake probably just doesn't add a distclean 
target to the generated Makefile.
If you want start with a super clean build, just remove the build directory, 
recreate it and run cmake again.

/usr/local/bin/ptedit_1 should launch it, ptedit_1 should launch it as well if 
/usr/local/bin is in the $PATH environment variable (which it usually is).
./ptedit_1 in the build directory should also work even without the need for 
make install, i.e. just make should suffice.

The output looks like ptedit started and exited without error, so I guess 
something is not happening that you are expecting to happen?
