If you do "make install" after compiling Freeciv, that _should_
overwrite the existing Freeciv installation.  If your old installation
was by RPM, that probably won't work; you will have to remove the old
installation using RPM.

What does civserver --version say?  Are you completely sure you
downloaded the right versions?

Lastly, you can run civserver and civclient from the directory where
you compiled them without having to do "make install".  Just type
"./ser" to start the server, and "./civ" to start the client (without
the quotes, off course).
