I can not delete a vol grp, but it doesn't show as there.  When I try to
create a new one with the same name, then it says it exists...  how do I
  'clean out' old references?

See below:

colobus:~ # pvscan
pvscan -- reading all physical volumes (this may take a while...)
pvscan -- ACTIVE   PV "/dev/sdb1" of VG "oraredo1" [100 MB / 100 MB free]
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/sdb2" is in no VG  [16.99 GB]
pvscan -- ACTIVE   PV "/dev/sdc1" of VG "oraredo2" [100 MB / 100 MB free]
pvscan -- inactive PV "/dev/sdc2" is in no VG  [16.99 GB]
pvscan -- ACTIVE   PV "/dev/sdd1" of VG "redogrp3" [17.09 GB / 16.98 GB
free]
pvscan -- ACTIVE   PV "/dev/sdd2" of VG "sysgrp"   [16.99 GB / 12.49 GB
free]
pvscan -- total: 6 [68.26 GB] / in use: 4 [34.28 GB] / in no VG: 2
[33.98 GB]

colobus:~ # vgcreate indxgrp /dev/sdc2
vgcreate -- volume group directory or file already exists
vgcreate -- please choose a different name

colobus:~ # vgremove indxgrp
vgremove -- ERROR: can't remove active volume group "indxgrp"

colobus:~ # vgchange -a n indxgrp
vgchange -- volume group "indxgrp" does not exist

colobus:~ # vgdisplay indxgrp
vgdisplay -- volume group "indxgrp" not found
