I am no shell expert but when I type 'echo $PATH', /usr/local/bin comes
before /usr/bin and /usr/local/sbin comes before /usr/sbin so it would
seem to me that it is standard behavior to execute binaries
from /usr/local/... first if found. 

That has also been my experience in the past when I have compiled
secondary installation of openldap/openssl/kerberos/cyrus-sasl because
of the outdated installations on previous RHEL setups and it was
virtually impossible to remove the base installation libraries of these
packages because of dependencies.

Thus installing the amanda rpm's without first removing your source
installation was doomed before you began.
