TagLib uses the same installation mechanisms that 90% of Open Source projects 
do.  After building there should be files in taglib-1.3.1/taglib/.lib/...

- You probably still have the old version of TagLib installed
- You're probably installing the new one to a different path than the old one
- amaroK is probably finding the taglib-config script from the old one because 
it's earlier in your path
