You probably have the older version in your path.
Try using the full path to the gpg executable you compiled, that should
give you the correct version.
If you are using an Unix-like system try "which gpg" to see what
executable you are using from the command line.
On windows I would try to search for gpg.exe to see if any unexpected
or old turns up.
