Oh yeah - duh, tn5250 is a script.  Right near the top is:

relink_command="  < whole bunch of stuff here > gcc -g -O2 -o
\$progdir/\$file tn5250.o  ./.libs/lib5250.so  < some more stuff > "

that relink_command shows it is using the libs in .libs within the current
directory.  That contains the libraries we just built.  So ./tn5250 does
indeed do just what we want (i.e. it doesn't use the installed lib5250.so
but instead uses the version just built).
