If you previously installed tor with your package management system, then you 
now have 2x tor, once default '/usr/bin/tor' and once compiled yourself '/usr/
local/bin/tor' or somewhere.
Did you uninstall the 'default' (installed with apt) tor daemon first?

Remove removes the application, but leaves the system configuration files, purge 
also deletes system configuration files and your tor keys!
apt remove tor
apt purge tor

Reminder, don't forget the autostart scripts after compiling.
