"sudo checkinstall" instead of "sudo make install"

The pain of removing packages installed from source has reached its ultimate peak and it's the highest time to move to checkinstall. This gives us a very handy ability to remove a package from the system using the system packaging tools: e.g.  

dpkg -r custom-protobuf

So current flow of commands for any installation from source is:

sudo checkinstall
