How to uninstall old KDE

Perhaps I should be more clear. I am using konstruct to download and
build the KDE3.2 sources. This installs everything relative to
$HOME/kde3.2 by default. I wish to rebuild the entire package and
replace my existing KDE3.1.5 which is entireley rpm-based and install
everything relative to /usr.
I also want to remove the existing KDE and need a comprehensive howto.
I am not able to do a 'rpm -Uvh *' in this case so I need to fully
understand which rpm's exactly to remove.
Is this documented anywhere?
