Defvar sets the value of the variable only the first time it is
evaluated.
The second time, if there is already a value, it is not changed by
defvar anymore.

It sems to me that org.el is already loaded once before you make the
new version
available.  A way to do this would be (schematically:

(require 'org)  ; this load the built-in version
(setq load-path (cons "/path/to/new/org/" . load-path))
(load-file "org.el") ; this loads the new one.

Hope this helps
