It's likely that you're finding the wrong git binary.
Check the output of `which git`.

If you remove git-core then things will probably work better.
Where did you install the git you compiled yourself?

By default, running 'make install' installs git to ~/bin/git,
so all you have to do is add $HOME/bin to your $PATH and things
will work.
