Well, in this specific case, I think it's probably the out of tree
uboot-sunxi thing that does not comply with normal U-Boot practices. I
think in U-Boot mainline, the SPL, whatever its name is, is always
finally installed in the main source directory at the end of the build.

If you really want, we can tune the boot/uboot.mk logic so that it
search $(@D) and $(@D)/spl, but I would rather suggest to fix
uboot-sunxi instead :)
