I'm not sure whether this is the problem here, but this in itself is bad. 
When you compile from source, often the paths get hard-coded into the 
executables.  Once you move them, the hard-coded paths are no longer valid and 
all sorts of strange 'not found' errors can appear.

I would suggest recompiling, but changing the installation path to /opt/local 
instead of the default /usr/local, so that any hard-coded paths remain valid 
after installation.
