One problem is that the system-wide NetworkManager instance gets D-Bus

   systemctl stop NetworkManager

   # Could not acquire the NetworkManager service as it is already taken.

For that, you could do:

   chmod -x /sbin/NetworkManager

"systemctl mask NetworkManager" is probably less invasive and should be
preferred (doesn't modify the packaged files, just adds configuration).

Disabling and stopping is enough, there's no need to fully mask the
service; i.e.:
# systemctl disable NetworkManager
# systemctl stop NetworkManager
# /other/prefix/NetworkManager --debug

Beware, though, doing this works as long as the dbus files are the
same in the system-installed and custom-compiled version.
