I first installed libnfc a library for NFC communication devices etc. Then I updated it by simply installing the newest version.

I did

autoreconf -vis
./configure --enable-doc
sudo make install

according to instructions.

When I show devices with list-nfc the old libnfc is still in use. I tried to locate the problem with whereis libnfc. I guess its something with paths? I guess I can't compile, install applications and then compile and install new versions of the application properly.

Can someone maybe explain what I do wrong here?
