The binutils you compiled were installed to /usr/local/bin, but the old
are probably still present in /usr/bin, which comes first in your path.
(Try 'which as' and see if it reports /usr/bin/as or /usr/local/bin/as).
There are two simple solutions - either configure the new binutils with
--prefix=/usr/bin and overwrite the old ones, or make sure /usr/local/bin
comes before /usr/bin in your path, e.g. with
setenv PATH "/usr/local/bin:$PATH"
