Yes (for me it is in /usr/lib/tracker/tracker-extract). Starting this
manually then the file does get indexed, and found in subsequent


Presumably this file is in place too and points to the right binary:


Yes - this file is in place and points correctly
to /usr/lib/tracker/tracker-extract

NOTE: The above two locations for tracker-extract are *NOT* the same. This looks quite suspicious to me.

I would wager that running these two commands outputs different results:

  /usr/libexec/tracker-extract -V
  /usr/lib/tracker/tracker-extract -V

In any case, I wouldn't expect both locations to have that binary. So it certainly looks like you need to clean your $prefix and re-make install.
