At a guess, the distro you're using has altered the install convention
such that a source build is not integrating with the
distribution-shipped hotplug/udev/systemd rules.  It also sounds like
the backends are also not installed where the distro expects.

I know for a fact that getting a source build to work on, eg, Fedora,
will be an exercise in reading the Fedora package's spec files

Most of the install documentation shipped with the current sane
backends is out of date, incorrect for a given distribution, or both.
It still talks about the 2.6 kernel series as if it were new...
