Timidity++ doesn't work

I just installed TiMidity++ v. 2.13.0 from source. The only problem is that it doesn't work. When i run it, this is what happens...
mark@darkstar:~/downloads/TiMidity++-2.13.0$ timidity -ig
xgmap.cfg: No such file or directory
timidity: Can't read any configuration file.
Please check /usr/local/share/timidity/timidity.cfg
After that, I checked an saw that there is no /usr/local/share/timidity folder.
This is how I installed it...
$ ./configure --enable-audio=alsa,oss,arts,esd,vorbis --enable-interface=motif,gtk --enable-network --enable-spectogram
$ make
$ su
$ checkinstall

You haven't installed any voice data.
See the instructions at
You missed out the last step (the section just above comments at the end of the file).
