ECL needs to know where the shared library containing the runtime is 
going to be. If you run it from the build directory, it will look for 
the shared library at the place where it should be installed. Since you 
have not yet done "make install", you will instead run the old version 
of ECL.

I cannot do anything against this. It does not have to do with ecl but 
with your operating system and the way it searches DLLs. In windows, for 
instance, this does not happen because DLLs are searched according to 
PATH and the current directory is included in the path. Under Linux you 
can do (LD_LIBRARY_PATH=`pwd` ecl) and this should work as you expect.
