You deleted too much.  

I am doing this constantly and installed BSPs tend to not get in the 
way.  When it comes time to reinstall them, you can delete 
/opt/rtems/CPU-rtems/BSP if I got that path right.  There is also
a /opt/rtems/make directory if I recall correctly that you would
want to clobber.  

If you are using RPMs, a simple thing to do is uninstall them,
rm -rf /opt/rtems and start over. :)
