You want to use:

sudo apt-get install checkinstall

Before this have a look at:

apt-cache show checkinstall:
"CheckInstall keeps track of all the files created or modified by your
installation script ("make install" "make install_modules", "setup",
etc), builds a standard binary package and installs it in your system
giving you the ability to uninstall it with your distribution's
standard package management utilities."

Nevertheless: It also works without checkinstall ;-)
