You just compiled your code (and possibly other plugins), but you did NOT link that changed object code to the resulting binary, that's the reason why you did not see any changes.

Running make in the main directory fixed the problem, as the build process figured out, that your object code had changed and then it performed the required steps to integrate your changes into the binary. Without any further information I guess it was mostly running the linker.
