If the target is going to be casual builders, should the recommendation instead include in the recipe the commands to package the app first and then install via the system package manager? That would seem a cleaner approach and remove the need for retaining build directories for removal, having to probably revisit the wiki to figure out how to uninstall just use their regular package manager to handle it.
