It might be worth waiting for some others to chime in. While this is
one potential route (make install), I do exactly what you did, and it
works fine as far as I know. I haven't seen a concrete response above
as to what exactly can go wrong -- Achim hinted that it's not trivial
to disable the built-in org, but said it shouldn't matter if one loads
the git org early on (it's the first line in my .emacs), so I'm not
sure if it matters that the built-in org sort of "lives on" beneath
the surface.

On that note, is there a recommended "diagnosis" route someone could
recommend other than simply `M-x org-version`? Is it possible to get,
e.g. 8.0.7, from that command but be pulling from mixed org locations
(org shipped with Emacs, and org from tgz or git)? If so, I was
unaware, so it'd be great to understand how one can do a full

If not, great, I won't worry about it and I'll view the `make install`
recommendations as more of a housekeeping suggestion vs. a functional
one (risk of mixed install).
