rm and rmdir directives



Hi all --
  I need a little coaching on the rm command [also rmdir].
I untarred apache_1.3.12 and before running ./configure an
new rev. has appeared and I want to get rid of the
/usr/local/apache_1.3.12 directory and its' subdirectories.

from /usr/local I have tried
    rm -dR apache_1.3.12

 and rmdir --ignore-fail-on-non-empty apache_1.3.12

neither works as I understand they should from the man
pages.  A little prod in the right direction appreciated!

Thanks,


Bob Hartung
