By default, configure will use a prefix of /usr/local, which means that
new versions of GNU make are installed into /usr/local/bin.

If, after you install it, you're still seeing the old version that means
it is in some other directory, and that directory is on your PATH before
/usr/local/bin (or, /usr/local/bin isn't even on your PATH at all).
