This is probably what happens when you install your build in /usr/local
and leave the Ubuntu package installed.  When you try to run your build,
it'll pick up libraries from the packaged version, which usually won't
work.  I'd suggest using a different install location, such as
$HOME/local/rhythmbox, which you can do by passing the
--prefix=<location> argument to ./configure.

Alternatively, you could use the packages from my PPA: which generally keeps up
with releases and sometimes has prereleases.  This will replace the
Ubuntu package version.
