This was because I forgot to make install targets for some files in the SVN 
data directory. Has been fixed in SVN.

The spring-data package doesn't contain any maps as far as I know. Maybe 
you're considering something a map which isn't a map?

Spring packages (both maps and mods) have a .sdz or .sd7 extension, maps are 
usually located in a "maps/" subdirectory of the data directory, mods in 
a "mods/" subdirectory (duh ;-).
