Is there any way for an applicatoin to figure out where apaches' config
files are at?  If there is, you could look at /etc/apache*/httpd.conf
for anything with "rt2" in the domain name, and if found, look at the
virtdomain config for /stats handling stuff.

Also, I would suspect you have a list of md5sums of the files from the
previous releases.  Then you will be able to know with pretty good
certainty whether or not an old file is on the system which hasn't been
edited, and can be nuked.

"make find-old"
"make uninstall-old"

might be two commands which work in that order.  Is it completely
necessary to query the user before deleting any files?  I suspect it is,
possibly even before each file individually.
