backwardsEric is on a distinguished road
There is an installation option where file with the high scores can be shared with multiple users. I was under the mistaken impression one could use that option while each user's save files were stored in a private directory.

You might try

sudo find / -name scores
that would locate the directory where the previous scores are stored. The save files should be in "save" subdirectory that is a sibling to that. I only say that because, when I tried to mimic Homebrew's installation steps, configure said it was placing the save files within ~/.angband/Angband, but the save files ended up elsewhere.

The name of the save file is linked to the Unix user name, so if that name changed somehow, that would be one way you wouldn't see the old save file when starting the game.
