I'd say yes, to save disk space, if for no other reason. It's a good
idea to remove them besides that, so you don't end up running binaries you
don't mean to run because of how your path is setup.

It won't. The apt system installs binary packages. If you're
installing from svn, you're most likely installing source that you'll
be compiling into binaries. So, the apt system will have no idea
that your own versions of the software are on your system, and it will
just leave them alone.
