You're quite welcome!

He may be building from a custom tree, or one which is based on the
current top-of-branch development code at the SANE repository.
There have been a number of changes committed to the repo since
1.0.27 was released, I believe, and you would not have found any of
those in the 1.0.27 tarball you downloaded.

You should be able to remove it.  Once the files are installed in
/usr/local/ there won't be any back-links to the source or build
