Some ideas, if you've not already been there:
Building from source doesn't change your init file or logging
configurations (at least it doesn't for me.)
If you do: ps axl | grep mythbackend | grep -v grep , is your
logging still --syslog local 7 (as opposed to --logpath ... ?
Mythbuntu starts the backend in /etc/init/mythtv-backend.conf,
which shouldn't have changed because you're building from source,
but is it executing your /usr/local/bin/mythbackend, not
You can always start the backend from the command line for testing:
sudo /usr/local/bin/mythbackend --logpath /tmp -v --user mythtv
(or --syslog local7 in place of --logpath /tmp)
