./configure --help will list all the flags.

Sorry - I don't use Ubuntu and don't know how to compile stuff from their repos,
but I suspect if you figured that out you'd find the right set of flags to
overwrite the version from their packages.

Nope, that's not it - it should be something more like this:
% ls /usr/share/X11/xkb/
compat/ geometry/ README symbols/
compiled/ keycodes/ rules/ types/
The /var/lib/xkb directory is the one for --with-xkb-output, not --with-xkb-path.
