Ah, well, there's your problem.  That does not work.

So, either keep a copy before you uninstall the distro gpsd, or
use the files from gpsd tar ball in the systemd/ subdirectory.

You can't use the distro systemd file because the distro gpsd is
not installed in the same place as the gpsd that you build.

Distro packages go in /usr.  User installed packages go in /usr/local.
This is all part of the File Handling Standard (FHS).

No, you did.  And try to break that sudo habit, it will continue
to byte you.
