Yes, I deleted /root/ispconfig to redo the upgrade.
This is the reason why you lost your ispconfig setup. By removing /root/ispconfig you wiped out your old installation and the ispconfig installer started in install mode instead of update mode which deleted the ispconfig database. If you dont have a backup of the ispconfig database your setup can not be restored except of adding everything manually again.

And I'm curious - I actually have very few sites, and none that I couldn't easily recreate - what would be involved in changing over to ISPConfig 3 from this setup? I understand there is no upgrade path. I think I would need to uninstall ISPConfig 2, and replace (my lovely chrooted) BIND with MyDNS. What else would I have to do?
Make a backup of your sites and databases, format the server and install ispconfig 3 as described in the perfect setup guide for ispconfig 3. ISPConfig 3 can not be installed on a server that has run ispconfig 2 before.
