"If you're looking to totally reinstall postgresql I suggest you run

dpkg --list | grep postgresql

and then run

dpkg --purge <insert package here>

for each package that the list command returned (most likely postgresql-common and postgresql-8.4

and then reinstall using aptitude install postgresql, this will remove and then bring all the config files back."
