[Dovecot] How To Remove?

i was looking to setup imap on an old PPC G5 mac i have running as webserver and gateway/firewall machine.. found a dovecot-2.1.7-0.pkg online, and it looked like the typical easy install thing.. someplace called rudix made the package.. 

not much there in way of instructions, but after i finally figured out where the executable had been stuck i tried it, just to see what kinda config errors would be thrown-up.. got the line below..

/usr/local/sbin/dovecot: Bad CPU type in executable

so i'm guessing this means dovecot is intel-cpu only? i don't have the time or patience to read all the unix junk, and get a compiler, do all the make files etc.. been years since i did any of that, and don't want to do it again.. 

the pkg installer did not come with an uninstaller, and since the install is pretty much useless, is there some list of what it installed so i can get rid of it all?

thanks, christian
