When you removed the ATRPMS package it probably took out the startup
script in /etc/init.d.

What I did to upgrade to SVN from ATRPMS packages:

1. Build/install with --prefix=/usr/local
2. Add to ld.so.conf as state above
3. rm -f /usr/bin/myth* (and any other myth executables)
4. rm -rf /usr/lib/libmyth (and any other myth stuff)

Just make sure you have no myth files in /usr/bin and /usr/local and
try mythbackend from the command line.  If still getting an error
check permissions and check that /usr/local is in /etc/ld.so.conf.
