That would be the safest. Now, make clean will only remove the last
installation (which is probably the good one).

If I were you, I would save my mm_cfg.py changes if any and remove
/var/mailman/ and /usr/local/mailman/ and the 2.1.6b4 source and
download beta 5 from http://mm.tkikuchi.net/mailman-2.1.6b5.tgz and
rerun configure and make install.

That way, you'll know exactly what you've got.
