[CentOS] Can't yum erase/install an app

I am switching the box that I did the HIPL rpm builds over to running
from rpms built directly by the HIPL team
I did the 'make uninstall' and then 'yum install hipl-all', but the
hipl-firewall rpm did not install. Seems like I have a mess on my
system with the various hipfw files. I 'manually' deleted a bunch of
them (perhaps a mistake), and then tried 'yum install hipl-firewall' and
it reported that it was installed. So I tried a 'yum erase
hipl-firewall' and got two errors:
hipfw: unrecognized service
error reading information on service hipfw: No such file or directory
Then I get a 'Removed: hipl-firewall.i386 0:1.0.4-1' and a 'Complete!'.
I then do a 'yum install hipl-firewall' and get that it is installed and
there is nothing to do....
Well, it is not installed, but there is something in yum that says it is
installed. What to do? man yum does not show any options to force the
install. So how do I get around this foobar?
