Earlier you said it works using the full path:

/usr/local/bin/mythbackend --version

If that works then it sure sounds like you have mythtv installed ok
but there is a problem in your environment.
The error is almost like what you'd see with a bad alias:

[root at masterbackend mythtv]# alias foobar=/usr/bin/foobar
[root at masterbackend mythtv]# foobar  --version
-bash: /usr/bin/foobar: No such file or directory

But you also said which mythbackend printed the correct file... for an
alias I think it would do this:
[root at masterbackend mythtv]# which foobar
alias foobar='/usr/bin/foobar'

I have an FC6 install so I don't know specifically if there are any
environmental oddities like this with MythDora.  When all else fails
you can always reboot the machine... I think I am out of ideas.
