If it's a package then removing it should be just the same as any other
package.  If you mean you've installed from source into /usr/local then
it should be easy enough to clean up the files manually - the following
would look (at first glance anyway) to cover everything:

        rm /usr/local/bin/myth*
        rm -rf /usr/local/include/mythtv
        rm -rf /usr/local/lib/mythtv
        rm -rf /usr/local/share/mythtv
        rm /usr/local/lib/libmyth*
