Or maybe your build does point to /usr instead of /usr/local?

For now: none. If you want to get the build done you don't really
*need* the initscripts, these are for automating everything. You can
simply fire up an xterm and call mythbackend in there.

Once you're content with your build you can wrap it up by picking a
sane start/stop scripts for mythtv. You can take some from the
tarball, the packages or the wiki, just make sure everything else
works before the wrap-up.
