Thanks again! I now have these lines for the latest orgmode which works
pretty well

(setq el-get-sources
   (:name org-mode
;;     :build ("make clean" "make")
     :after (lambda ()
            (setq load-path (remove "~/rechner/emacs-trunk/lisp/org/"

I found two or three threads on the web where people ran into the same
problems like me. One problem is the load path. If I e.g. install
`dired+` with el-get-install where is it afterwards? Why can't I load it
with load-library?

Anyway, I am using emacs more than 5 years now without some package
helper. To update modes like orgmode which I pull from git I have a
little script which updates all at once. The single *.el files I put in
a directory and generate autoloads. That's it.

I think I am happy knowing that there are ways to manage elisp code and
that they might work...
