  2. Did just that recently whilst cd'ed into /usr/bin !!! Not the best place
    to do rm * okay so it wasn't me per se rather the Mozilla installer being
    over enthusiastic.
    Several iterations of this (or similar):

    rpm -Va|grep missing|cut --delimiter=" " --field=5|xargs \
    rpm --install --replacepkgs

    In otherwords rpm --install --replacepkgs is your friend.

    Got evrything back.
