I add only a tip I use with all the packages I compile from source.

I simply do:

  ./configure; make; sudo checkinstall make install

(I've configured sudo to execute checkinstall as normal user)

in this way a debian package is create and is very easy to
install/remove/upgrade it. The system files are installed in /usr/local
as they went installed with a make install, but I have the comodity of
the debian packages.

Ah, and when you don't know what package contains a particular file
apt-file is your friend ;-).
