This has come up in the past (for example, Issue549764) but, AFAIK, no one has shown much interest in pursuing such a feature by providing a patch.  Note that it would likely be very tricky to cover all the edge cases properly.  As a practical matter, one reason this issue hasn't been addressed at the Makefile level is that most Python users do not install Python themselves from source but rather use one installed by some sort of package manager - e.g. an operating system release (e.g. Debian, OS X, etc), a third-party package manager (e.g. conda etc), or the Windows installer - all of which have their own ways of managing installs, upgrades, and uninstalls.  Unless you or someone else is willing to work on a patch with tests that does not add a significant new maintenance burden to the Makefile, it's likely to languish again.
