With org-mode version 6.25f, the file org-export-latex.el was renamed to
org-latex.el. Off the top of my head, I can think of a couple of things
you might check:

1. If you look in the lisp subdirectory of the org distribution you
   downloaded, can you confirm that org-latex.el was byte-compiled as a
   result of the make process?

2. Check the directory where you installed the new org files (e.g.,
   /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp or somewhere else) to see if org-latex is
   was copied to that directory.

I'm sure others will be along with more concrete advice sometime soon.

Hope this helps,
