[Haskell-cafe] How to thoroughly clean up Haskell stuff on linux

I have been hacking the Haskell installation a few days on Redhat Linux.
  GHC 6.6 -> 6.6.1 -> Lambdabot does not work.
  Downgrade to GHC 6.4 -> Still not working, tried cabal-install to
simplify my life, but no luck.
  Then install Cabal, Haddock -> Haddock cannot install bc Lambdabot is
not there. (And some dependency issues.)
  Remove .ghci, Haddock still not work.

It seems the Haskell world (outside the beautiful GHC) is in a recursive
non-functional blackhole.

Anyway, now my question is, how do I thoroughly clean up Haskell? (And
maybe try again after a few days of rest.)

My environment is Redhat Linux, install most stuff on
/home/<user>/<product>/ where <product> = GHC, Lambdabot, cabal,
haddock, etc. It seems there are some hidden files/dirs, .GHC, .ghci,
anything else?
