console beep, mutt, removing compiled stuff



howdy folks!

few questions...

1) what makes the console beep (tab-completion,
hitting backspace) and how do you shut it off -
permanently... setterm?

2) anyone know of a nice mutt tutorial out there?
i'm starting to dump most of the gui programs in
favor of text mode stuff... ala irssi/micq...  and
i would like to add mutt to my arsenal. i would
like to test sending mail on my box (locally) only
and was wondering what you guys use for mta's and
such.

3) i compiled licq from source... ./config, make,
make install..   no success.. not sure why but i'd
like to dump licq anyway in favor of micq. i'm
still a psuedo-n00b and i know the common answer
is 'just find where it is on your box and delete
it...' ..   but i'm talking removing it
all..anything licq...

/usr/local/bin/licq
/usr/share/doc/licq/....etc.

building from source is very cool indeed except
when you have to remove all the stuff it can be
kind of a pain. is there a nice one liner that
would delete it all? something like 'find / |
rm -rf 'licq files'. i like learning about console
commands because i think they're damn powerful.

thanks much guys...the list has always been
cool...
