"make install" places the new drivers in an incorrect directory.

Switch to a text console (ctrl-alt-f1) and execute:
# sudo service gdm stop
# sudo cp /usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/* /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers
# sudo service gdm start

Check /var/log/Xorg.0.log for the driver version currently in use. It should
say something like:

  (II) Module intel: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
        compiled for 1.6.4, module version = 2.9.1
        Module class: X.Org Video Driver
        ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 5.0

Switching to the new drivers solved the problem for me.
