By default, it no longer installs the .el files that are precompiled (use --full-dist to bring them back). If you specify the --symlink flag, the Emacs binary inside the Carbon Emacs.app will be a symlink to $prefix/bin/emacs. This makes the Emacs app very small (60K), which is probably a good thing. I also added a flag to create self-contained binaries (where the binary is placed in Emacs.app/Contents/Resources/bin). There were some other changes too, but not really that important. I'd suggest rerunning make-package if you are running out of bandwidth on your site.
For the list: Why does "make install" install two identical copies of the executable; emacs & emacs-21.3.50? Why is emacs not a symbolic link?
