You should not install two versions of pcsc-lite at the same time.
I guess you still have the version provided by Ubuntu and now also
version 1.6.5 in /usr/local.
But that should not be the source of your problem.
I guess you will see "permission denied" errors if you start pcscd in
debug mode as a normal user.
Try to run: "pcscd -fd"
You may have "forgotten" to run "make fix-rights" after installing
pcsc-lite. This is not documented so I am not surprised by your
