I don't know how this happened, but also in /usr/local/bin I found an emacs-24.50 directory tree and deleted it. That was probably one of those archlinux updates in which the packager was nice enough to not overwrite /usr/bin/emacs but I didn't read any post-install notes on the changed situation when it happened.

Correct, /usr/bin/emacs --version returns emacs version 24.5-1 with
copyright date of 2015.  I deleted /usr/local/bin/emacs, let's see
if which can now find the correct binary.

No need to do that: explicitly invoking /usr/bin/emacs should be
enough.

OTOH if it's not working...

Be aware that this local installation of emacs possibly carries a lot
of stuff with it, which will be now typically sitting idle somewhere
in /usr/local/lib, /usr/local/share, and so on.

If you've got plenty of disk space you can leave that alone, but if
not...

Be careful when deleting stuff :-)
