Maybe you need to modify the LD_LIBRARY_PATH accordingly.

(When self compiling I often create a small file like "setgnupg"
and source it in my shell to set all the path. Here is my file for the 
packages of Phil. For those LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not needed but this maybe 
different in your situation.)

more setgnupg /dev/null

# from Phil Pennock and gnupg-devel:
# LD_LIBRARY_PATH is unneeded,
#   because the executables have the RPATH stamped into them.

# You _shouldn't_ need to set MANPATH explicitly on any modern man(1)
# system, because they have facilities to translate $PATH to $MANPATH
# accordingly. 
#export MANPATH=$base/share/man:$MANPATH
export PATH=$base/bin:$PATH
export INFOPATH=$base/share/info:$INFOPATH

. setgnupg
gets me the new version as preferred binary.
