You should only need to keep the jabberd executable (in the jabberd/ directory), any .so files (in the module subdirectories unless you compiled static), the xml config file, anything under your spool directory (the user files and JUD if you have a JUD
running).  All the Makefiles, READMEs, .c, .h, .o and the entire pth-xxx subdirectory can be deleted.  I made a logs subdirectory and have some scripts in the main directory, so I keep those as well.  That should pretty much be it.
