Well, you are appending your stuff at the end of whatever emacs sets it to,
so it prefers *its* directories over yours.

I also meant that you should ask emacs what *it* thinks its load path is:

  C-h v load-path

That may differ wildly from what you think it is.

As an aside, I think (but I am not sure) that part of the debian/ubuntu
problem that people have been running into is that the convoluted
loading of packages causes load-path to be set in such a way that the
user *cannot* override the setting from his/her own init files; one has
to find and edit/delete system files (in /etc/emacs or thereabouts).

It's another debugging tool. In combination with the value of load-path,
it can guide you in the right direction.
