Vyacheslav, you do not need to react to my patch, it is for Org 
maintainers. There is neither continuous integration server nor ready to 
use configuration (e.g. a set of docker containers) to verify commits in 
clean environment. As a result some files may have minor issues that are 
unnoticeable by most of users. However it is better to fix 
inconsistencies like missed `require', etc.

Notice that you can have more than one org mode version installed. E.g. 
in Debian and Ubuntu in addition to the version bundled with Emacs, it 
is possible to install elpa-org deb package. The version however is 
anyway noticeably older than current stable Org release, so people often 
use various package managers for Emacs.

The problem you have met is not uncommon, example of usual response:
Unfortunately symptoms are usually quite obscure, they may reveal 
another issue. I do not know if it is possible to implement a trap to 
explicitly notify user that parts of org are loaded from different 

There are may be some pitfalls on the way to have newer org version:
- You should not require any org modules before `load-path' is adjusted.
- Do not forget to recompile after update of sources. It seems, Emacs do 
not have means to detect stale .elc file similar to e.g. Python.
- Attempt to try alternative version without modification of init.el may 
result in unexpected result. Usually "-Q" or at least "-q" option is 
required to suppress initialization. "-L" option is processed after 
init.el. So "emacs -L ~/src/org-mode/lisp" can easily result in mixed 
install. E.g. "emacs -Q -L ~/src/org-mode/lisp -l ~/.emacs.d/init.el" 
mostly work but there are some edge cases since it is not full 
equivalent of real initialization. There is no way to specify custom 
init file through command line option, it is necessary to create a part 
of parallel universe and pass it as --user option argument, HOME or 
XDG_CONFIG_HOME (for latest emacs version) environment:

Do not be afraid by such complications too much. ELPA package is the 
recommended way to have latest stable version:
Alternatively ensure that (add-to-list 'load-path "~/src/org-mode/lisp") 
is early enough in your init.el.
