Two ways.

1) In the install directory, run 'bin/update --force' which will force
the update which is the only thing 'make install' didn't do.

2) Edit the file last_mailman_version in Mailman's data/ directory.
Change 0x20200a0 to 0x20113f0 (or actually anything less than 0x20114f0)
and rerun 'make install'.
